Tamils attack India House in United Kingdom

Hundreds of Tamils who were protesting outside the Indian High Commission in London, resorted to violence and attempted to damage the building of the India House.

The Tamil activists had gathered outside the High Commission's office and began shouting anti-India slogans. They were upset with the Indian government's role on the issue of Sri Lankan army's attack on Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

With army closing in on the LTTE bastion and the rebel Tigers barely controlling an area of 5 sq km, the pro-LTTE groups had given a call to protest the inaction of the Indian government in protecting the interests of Tamilians.

Some of the angry protesters barged into the building through the main door. The security men overpowered them and forced them out. However, there were attempts to damage the building by hurling stones.

The incident has come in wake of the damage to the statue of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in India Palace public square in London just a few days back by suspected pro-LTTE groups.

The statue had been uprooted. Apart from England, similar protests have been held in United States of America, France and Canada also apart from Malaysia and some other Asian countries.
