Tamil widow blames RUC for training team she says killed her family

The visit happened months after the Special Support Unit, an elite RUC police commando team, shot dead six men in Co Armagh in one of the most controversial episodes of the Troubles.
Sri Lankan police set up an almost identical commando unit shortly afterwards, called the Special Task Force. The complainant, who cannot be named for safety reasons, says “the Special Task Force was responsible for the murder of my family” in 1986.
Both the RUC and Sri Lankan units consisted of heavily armed police officers who underwent special forces training.
