Tamil Tigers

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), also known as the Tamil Tigers, is a Sri Lankan Tamil guerrilla and terrorist organization founded in 1976 that has sought to establish an independent state, called Tamil Eelam, in the north-east of Sri Lanka. However, as the country entered a "post-conflict" phase in 2002 and 2003, the LTTE seemed to moderate these demands, seeking instead greater political and economic autonomy within a one-state solution and acknowledging that a military approach was not a viable way to achieve their goals.
