Sri Lanka 'not interested in witch hunts'

The Sri Lankan government says that reaction to a UN report on the end of its war with the Tamil Tigers is hampering reconciliation on the island.

Charles Haviland is our correspondent in Colombo.

And Professor Rajiva Wijesinha, adviser on reconciliation to the Sri Lankan president, analyses progress in the area.

Channel 4 deny the accusation that they apologised for their film, Sri Lanka's Killing Fields, because it contained faked images of war crimes. They insist that they stand by the "excellent journalism in this film" which (they say) has resulted in calls across the world to investigate these apparent war crimes. "It is categorically untrue", Channel 4 say "that we had doubts about any of the footage that was used. The Sri Lankan government has taken repeated actions against Channel 4 News through the regulator Ofcom, all of which have been rejected."
