I repeated at this morning's press conference the need for the fighting to stop. But now en route from the IDP camp to the president I'm thinking too about the basic deal for those who have escaped the conflict zone: the Sri Lankan government want aid but for that they need to offer access to the UN and NGOs.
The need is evident: three and soon to be four camps for 115,000 people (at least) is an overwhelming flood and the only way to meet that is with help, and for help there needs to be transparency and openness (for the media too).
