The UN Human Rights Council praised on Wednesday Sri Lanka's victory over the Tamil Tigers and condemned the rebels for using civilians as human shields. China, Cuba, Egypt and 26 others on the 47-member council voted in favor of a resolution that described the conflict as a "domestic" matter that did not warrant outside interference. The council also supported the Sri Lankan government's decision to provide aid groups only with "access as may be appropriate" to refugee camps. Twelve mostly European countries opposed the resolution after failing to get support for a resolution that criticized both sides.
