IAC interfaith service to commemorate Lusignan massacre

The Indian Action Committee (IAC) will host an inter-faith service on Tuesday to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Lusignan massacre, in which 11 persons were killed.

The event, which has been organised by the IAC in collaboration with the relatives of the slain victims, residents of Lusignan and the religious community, will commence at 5pm at Tract “A” Lusignan, where the massacre took place.

Six adults and five children were mowed down in their homes by gunmen on the morning of January 26, 2008.

According to an IAC press release, the organisation has worked with the relatives, residents of Lusignan and the religious community in commemorating the event “in an effort to ensure that the memories of those whose lives were snuffed out would not fade into oblivion.”

It added that it has extended invitations to both government officials and members of the opposition, among others, while the general public is invited.
