* UK Sri Lankans show solidarity against pro-LTTE protests
Thu, Dec 2, 2010, 11:52 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 02, London: Thousands of Sri Lankan expatriates with banners and cutouts showing support to the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa gathered today in the bitter cold in front of The Dorchester Hotel in London, where the President is staying, to protest the pro-LTTE groups who had come to demonstrate against the Sri Lankan leader.

Meanwhile, the few pro-LTTE demonstrators stood on the opposite side with the flags of the banned Tamil Tiger terrorist organization amid heavy police presence.

Citing security concerns, the Oxford Union yesterday succumbed into the pressure from pro-LTTE groups and cancelled the President Rajapaksa's address to the Union scheduled to be given today.
