COLOMBO, Aug. 14, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- The Sri Lankan government has released more former Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) rebels to the society after rehabilitation, officials said on Saturday.

A total of 42 rebels all aged over 50 were released at Pompeimadu in the northern district of Vavuniya, said Brigadier Sudantha Ranasinghe, the Commissioner General of Rehabilitation.

Ranasinghe said a full total of 3,080 have now been reintegrated into the society after the due process of rehabilitation.

During the process of rehabilitation the former rebel cadres are given vocational training.

Officials said that about 8,000 Tiger rebels including their hardcore members are being held for further action.

Nearly 70 percent of the over 27,5000 civilian population displaced in the final stages of the conflict which ended in May last year have now been resettled.
