UN RESOLUTION

The US resolution at the UN Human Rights Council calls for an international investigation of alleged war crimes if Sri Lanka fails to conduct one of its own and to end post-war human rights violations and abuses.

Voting on the resolution is expected next week.

Sri Lanka has repeatedly resisted calls for the investigation into the final months of the quarter-century war that ended in 2009 with the defeat of the separatist Tamil Tiger rebels.
