Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa rides in a jeep during the victory day parade in Colombo on June 18, 2010. Sri Lanka staged a delayed military parade to mark the first anniversary of the end of its 37-year civil war, with pressure mounting for a probe into alleged crimes during the conflict. Rajapakse took the salute at the “Victory Parade” attended by thousands of troops drawn from units that led the final assault against Tamil Tigers whose leadership was killed on May 18 last year. AFP
