British Premier David Cameron and the New Zealand Minister of External Affairs Murray McCully who are in Sri Lank to take part in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting toured the North today.

Prior to the arrival of the British Premier two protests were organized near the Doreiappa grounds in Jaffna.

One protest was organized against Channel 4 and the other protest was organized by a group of relatives of those who have disappeared and abducted and was lead by TNA Northern Provincial Councillor Anandi Shashidaran.

However, the British Delegation lead by the British Premier met the leaders of the Tamil National Alliance at the Jaffna library.

A Channel 4 journalist took part in the meeting which local journalists were not allowed to cover.

At that moment the relatives of those who had disappeared and were abducted who were engaging in a protest near the Doreiappa grounds proceeded to engage in a protest in front of the Jaffna library.

The protestors then proceeded to express their displeasure at the leader of the TNA, R. Sambandan who exited the library following the conclusion of the meeting.
