They appear to need a bit of work:
At least 45 civilians have been killed in eastern Sri Lanka after army shells hit a camp for people displaced by the fighting, Tamil Tiger rebels say.Say bye-bye to the Peace Prize, Sri Sri.
Independent monitors who visited the scene confirm that many people were killed or injured. They say the attack seems to have come from army areas.
Another 125 were wounded in the shelling in the Vakarai region, rebel spokesman S Puleedevan told the BBC.
Update: A reader just informed us [Ed.note: Yes, we're wearing a tall, pointy dunce cap at the moment.] that Sri Sri lost the Peace Prize a month ago. Better luck next year, Sri Sri!
