Indian Tamil activists and supporters lie on a road and shout slogans during a protest against Sri Lanka's alleged wartime abuses in Chennai, India, on March 21, 2013. A key ethnic Tamil party withdrew from India's coalition government Tuesday, accusing the government of watering down a U.N. resolution criticizing Sri Lanka's war-time conduct against its minority Tamil population. The party has demanded the U.N. Human Rights Council resolution accuse Sri Lanka of genocide and that it leads to the formation of an international inquiry into possible war crimes.
