July 30th, 2010 - 8:21 pm ICT by IANS  

Colombo, July 30 (IANS) Britain has removed restrictions on travel imposed on its citizens touring Sri Lanka’s northern region.
“This latest change means we no longer advise against travel to any part of Sri Lanka,” British high commissioner in Colombo Peter Hayes said in a statement Friday.

Most western nations have now relaxed travel advisories following the end to Sri Lanka’s protracted battle between the government troops and Tamil Tiger rebels in May last year, Xinhua reported.
