London Tamil burns himself to death at UN
A TAMIL man from London burned himself to death outside the United Nations building in Geneva in protest at his people's treatment in Sri Lanka.
Computing graduate Murugathasan Varnakulasingham, 26, left his home in Harrow to attend a demonstration in the Swiss capital, where he doused himself in petrol and set himself alight last Thursday.
Police tried to save the part-time Sainsbury's shelf-stacker but his injuries proved too great.
Mr Varnakulasingham is the seventh Tamil to burn to death in the past month in protest at the Sri Lankan government's military offensive against the Tamil Tigers, which has led to civilian deaths and accusations of human rights violations.
His suicide note left outside the UN building read: "We Tamils, displaced and all over the world, loudly raised our problems and asked for help before (the) international community in your own language for three decades. But nothing happened."--taken from the Evening Standard
