Nearly 30,000 government troops were injured and 6,200 killed during the last three years of Sri Lanka's 37-year war with the separatist Tamil Tigers that ended last May. Among of those injured, many lost limbs, eyes or their hearing, and more than 300 troops were left with severe paralysis. AFP PHOTO/Ishara S.
