LTTE urges Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to facilitate ceasefire

New Delhi: Sri Lanka's beleaguered Tamil Tiger guerrillas Monday urged Indian spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar to facilitate a ceasefire in the island nation.

The appeal was made in a telephonic conversation between Ravi Shankar and B. Nadesan, chief of the political wing of the Liberation Tigers of the Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Nadesan said thousands of people "are suffering due to an acute shortage of food and medical facilities" in the narrow strip of land still held by the LTTE.

He said that the LTTE was "ready for peace and requested Ravi Shankar to do the needful to facilitate a ceasefire".

The LTTE plea came as the Sri Lankan military said it had confided the LTTE to an area less than five square kilometers on the coast of Mullaitivu district.
