yeah Pakistan not a good place to go these days. In fact that part of the world is quite dodgy. Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, it`s just a matter of time for stuff like this to happen...

It said on the news that one of the Sri Lankans was shot in the chest. Has anyone found any news on this? We can count our lucky stars that both union and league, for the most part, doesn't have to play in these parts of the world.

No international cricket should be played in Pakistan for a longtime....Pakistan should have to play there cricket overseas

You could probably throw Sri Lanka into that mix as well.

Apparently the terrorists may have been a Tamil group from Sri Lanka, but I don`t know if this has been confirmed yet.

Their passport probably doesn`t say `Don`t let me in, I`m here to blow up some people`. They can get there just like any Sri Lankan citizen. But premature to blame it on them.

I would of thought that the Sri Lankan government would of had some sort of thing going where they don't give passports to suspected members of the Tamal Tigers.

Thats how I'd do things if I was Boss anyway, but no one ever asks me.

Did anyone else confuse their Prime Ministers last name with Wicked-Monkey? I did a little double-take when my Classics teacher mentioned his name in class a few years ago.

Probably just me :behindsofa:

Well very few of these terrorists are identified, I would think. Being a Tamil doesn`t exclude you from getting a Sri Lankan passport. In the past, the Indian government has offered opportunities for Tamils to get Indian citizenships and return to India. But also, the Sri Lankan government has been giving them citizenship too. Obviously when a separationist deals with the official authorities, they will do their best to hide their intentions, so it`s very hard to avoid that terrorists should get passports. But again, too early to speculate on this, can`t be sure who was behind this.

Why, what`s the real name?

I have no idea how to spell it, and am too lazy to copy and paste it from the internet. Its Wickre Manaykaye or something of the sort.

Keep in mind that many Tamils are based in India - not Sri Lanka. Also, it's important to differentiate between the Tamils in general, and the Tamil Tigers. Not every Tamil is a Tiger.

In fact, you know that there was some pretty bad stuff in Pakistan just recently. Even their prime minister (I think), that woman, has been assassinated. So this may have absolutely nothing to do with the Tamil Tigers, may just be some extremist local group who want to show they mean business. I`m not quite sure at the moment, can`t think clearly after 4 beers, but I think Sri Lanka came to Pakistan after another team refused to tour there. So maybe the terrorists just wanted to show that they do mean the shit they`re doing and nobody should go there.

It would have been a terrible shame if a Sri Lankan player was killed after they had volunteered to go over there to help Pakistan out.

i didn't realise this, i thought it was a speratist group in Sri lanka.

cheers for the info Atila, broadened my knowledge on the subject.

Is that like the difference between the IRA, real IRA and Sinn Fean? Three different groups but still f***ing w**kers.
