Posted Date: 27/01/2018 (Saturday)
Myliddy in Sri Lanka’s northern Jaffna region, which once had the country’s second largest habour until the raging ethnic conflict destroyed that, is slowly returning to normal. For 27 years, the area was controlled by the army until last July when the Myliddy jetty was released to the public bringing happiness to the people.
