COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) - Some
200,000 people who fled fighting between Tamil rebels and Sri Lankan forces
are dangerously short of food, water and shelter, a relief agency said
Gordon Molitor, CARE's director in Sri
Lanka, praised the army and the separatists for allowing some food to be
delivered to refugees in the northern war zone, but said that was not enough.
"More relief is desperately needed,"
he said in a statement. "The humanitarian situation is precarious
and may get even worse."
