Now, a television channel from LTTE

Another channel starts operations, but one which we may never get to see here in India. According to a report on Tamilnet, the official website of the LTTE, the banned outfit has launched its own satellite channel, National Television of Thamil Eelam (NTT).

The report further said that the channel would be beaming programmes to European nations from an undisclosed location in Sri Lanka's northeast. An official was quoted as saying that the channel went on air on March 26, and for now will not be available to Asian audiences. He also said that the channel is to beam 15-minute news to Europe for the next two weeks, and thereafter the time would be increased to half an hour.

The channel would be based out of Paris, and will relay the broadcast to their audiences in Europe at 18.00 GMT. According to the same report, it hopes to expand its reach to other parts of the world in due course. The NTT logo shows the flower, "Karthigaipoo" or Gloriosa Lily, declared as national flower of Eelam Tamils in 2003.
