    ramesh, what does the hangman have to do with this topic, these people are from Burma and Bangaladesh.

    The headline should not say "foreigners,' simply people. The article can then go on to tell their nationalities. Unfortunately, the Sri Lankan mindset is always "foreigners" and "us."

    What does a hangman have to do with this rescue?

    Disillusioned Sunday, 03 February 2013 11:54 AM

    Well, apparently in this case, there was proper rescue available.

    Sunny, have you been in the sun too long? How do you think these people were found?
