Strongly condemning the death of an aid worker with a non-governmental organization CARE in the "no-fire" zone in Sri Lanka's strife-torn north, the United Nations has said this gives an insight into larger circumstances confronting civilians trapped by the fighting in the conflict zone.

R Sabesan, a national staff member with CARE, died of injuries sustained as a result of shelling inside the zone, compounded by a lack of sufficient medical care, the UN said.
