Asylum seekers in Nauru camp mark Maaverar Naal

Tamil asylum seekers being held in detention at Nauru Island marked Maaveerar Naal on Sunday, in a ceremony held at the immigration detention facility.

The detained asylum seekers, who have been detained on the island after attempting to flee Sri Lanka for Australia, marked the event with the rest of the Tamil nation this week.

They constructed a memorial displaying the garlanded portraits of fallen cadre. At 6.05 pm, in line with Tamils around the world, they lit the flame of remembrance to pay tribute to those killed by the Sri Lankan state in the struggle for liberation.
