The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), a regional party based in South India, announced Tuesday that it was withdrawing from the national ruling coalition, weakening the government which was already a minority in parliament. The DMK had been pressuring the government to condemn Sri Lanka over alleged war crimes against ethnic minority Tamils during the neighbouring island's civil war.
