An internally displaced Tamil girl looks out from her home at Konappulam Internally Displaced Persons camp in Jaffna, about 400 kilometres (250 miles) north of Colombo August 26, 2013. Sri Lanka battled separatist guerrillas from the minority Tamil community from 1983 until finally defeating them in 2009. The country has come under international pressure to bring to book those accused of war crimes and boost efforts to reconcile a polarised country.
