David Cameron was hailed a god as he was mobbed by relatives of Sri Lankan war victims.

The PM faced emotional scenes after becoming the first world leader in almost 70 years to visit the islands conflict-ravaged north.

He and his entourage were surrounded by distraught family members waving pictures of lost loved ones.

They claimed his visit was like a divine intervention which had given them new hope.

And they begged him to help them find out what happened to their sons and husbands who had disappeared after 26 years of bloody civil war between Tamil Tiger rebels and the military.

Hundreds of Sri Lankans, mainly mothers and widows, broke through police security lines to try to speak to Mr Cameron after he arrived in Jaffna, the Tamil stronghold where up to 40,000 civilians were slaughtered in the last few months of the war, which ended in 2009.

And the Tory-leader was given a heros welcome as he went on to visit Sabapathopillaia refugee camp.

The camps deputy leader, Sutharshan Uthayaswriyan, described Mr Cameron as a god coming down to this area.

He added: We believe he can make a difference. He is a god and he is sent by God to us.

Mr Cameron later admitted some of the scenes he witnessed had been incredibly powerful.

He said: I think coming here, listening to these people, helps to draw attention to their plight.

The spotlight has been shone on Sri Lanka and people can see the good and the bad.

But Mr Cameron, who has criticised the countrys human rights record, was accused by Sri Lankas hard-man President Mahinda Rajapaksa of simply trying to win votes from UK-based Tamils.
