UNHRC team visits Lanka?


Sri Lanka has permitted a three member team to visit the country as part of the review of its human rights record to be done by the UNHRC, the Asian age reports.

The UN Human Rights Council has adopted a resolution urging Sri Lanka to investigate alleged abuses during the final phase of war with Tamil rebels.

The US-backed motion called on Colombo to address alleged abuses of international humanitarian law.

It passed with 24 votes in favour, 15 against, eight abstentions.
