Long before the tragedy of September 11, Sri Lanka was dealing with a daily struggle against terrorism. The Tamal Tigers, a terrorist secessionist group, rose from a rag tag group of rebels to become a frightening military force. They have a naval arm, the Sea Tigers, and often employ children in all their units. Athas has covered the conflict despite numerous attempts by the government to control media reports. He has endured many hardships in his pursuit of this important story. It is a valuable read on the difficulties in covering terrorism and the necessity to do so.
