    Sri Lanka considers truth commission

    COLOMBO, Sri Lanka — Sri Lanka’s government said Wednesday that it was considering a process similar to South Africa’s post-apartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission to heal the wounds of the island nation’s civil war.

    Two senior ministers will lead a team to South Africa on Thursday for discussions with the country’s government and the African National Congress, Sri Lanka’s Foreign Ministry said. South African President Jacob Zuma has appointed ANC Deputy President Cyril Ramphosa as his envoy to Sri Lanka, the statement said.
