A picture taken at Thamilchelvan's funeral on the 5th has raised some eyebrows. In it a small child is shown standing behind a group of LTTE cadres carrying the remains of Chelvan to the Cemetery in Kilinochchi last evening. The child, possibly a girl, is dressed in the LTTE camouflage. Whether the child was dressed-up for the occasion or not and if so why was she walking alongside Chelvan's remains is unclear. The Island Newspaper indicated the picture was among the first images released of the funeral by Pro-LTTE media only to be withdrawn momentarily. Another image of a child soldier, acting as Chelvan's bodyguard was released soon after the attack on Thuruaiaru hideout last Friday. He was among those killed in the attack.
