Sri Lanka has rejected UN allegations it may have committed war crimes and vowed there will be no ceasefire in its drive to capture a shrinking rebel enclave and end the island's 25-year-old civil war.
A report on Friday from UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said government forces and Tamil rebels also warned that civilian casualties could reach "catastrophic" proportions if the two sides do not suspend fighting.
Pillay said the situation was becoming desperate and called for a halt in the fighting.
Human Rights Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe questioned charges in the report that 2,800 civilians had died in recent weeks as the military has pushed into the last remaining area held by the Tamil Tigers.
