Sri Lankan activists demanding the release of Tamil detainees held in custody for long periods without trial demonstrate outside the main prison in Colombo on 16 October. The prisoners were arrested during Sri Lanka’s 37-year civil war for suspected involvement with Tamil rebels fighting for a separate homeland for the ethnic minority, but remain in custody even after the end of the war in May 2009 – AFP/Ishara S.
