Canadian Goverment Minister Deported From Sri Lanka

SRI LANKA (Southern Indian Ocean): The Canadian government on Wednesday rebuked Sri Lanka for its refusal to allow a prominent Canadian MP into its country for allegedly supporting defeated Tamil Tiger rebels as "absurd."

"He was put in the next available flight and sent back," an airport official told AFP.

Bob Rae, a Liberal member of parliament, former Ontario premier and outspoken critic of the Sri Lankan military's offensive against the rebels, was detained after flying into Colombo's Bandaranaike International Airport.
