Police in the Norwegian capital, Oslo, have arrested three Sri Lankan Tamil men thought to be from rival factions supporting the Tamil Tigers, after a clash in a Hindu religious festival.

"Six men are wounded and three of them are arrested after dispute that evolved into the fight, "operations manager Find Belle of the Oslo Police was quoted in Norwegian media.

A fight has erupted at a Hindu temple festival in Oslo. The injured have been admitted to Ullevål hospital in Oslo.

Member of the Norwegian Council of Eelam Tamil, a pro-Tamil Tiger group led by Nediyavan, and the Norwegian Tamil Economical Unit, Sivaganesh Vadivelu is among the wounded.

He is currently being treated in the Intensive Care Unit. Nediyavan was reported to be the most senior LTTE leader who opposed the appointment of Kumaran Pathmanathan (KP) as the successor to Velupillai Prabhakaran.  (BBC Sinhala)

You can change the jungle, but tiger remains a tiger. Hope Norwegians will learn their lesson harboring terrorists.

It is an INSULT to refer to these type of people as Sri Lankan. They do not deserve to have such a valued nationality behind them.

There are a number of Sri Lankans who are doing well overseas and these types of people only tarnish the image of well respected Sri Lankan with their selfish attitude.
