[b]Acquisition of nerve gas and other lethal chemical weapons by the LTTE[/b]

[b]Colombo, 21 November, (;[/b] How did the LTTE, the Sri Lanka’s Tamil terrorist organisation, have a stockpile of chemical weapons? Which was the country that has provided the LTTE with these deadly weapons banned all over the world? These are disturbing questions asked in Colombo diplomatic and military circles in the backdrop of a political change in the leadership of Sri Lanka and the policies of the new leaders are still unclear and ambiguous.

“Asian Tribune” reliably learns that a foreign power has provided the LTTE with modern weapons and this includes a stockpile of nerve gas similar to the one used by the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein against Kurdish rebels.

As exclusively reported in our in the Asian Tribune a few days ago, a 400 men strong special strike force sent by the LTTE leader Velupillai Prabakaran to search and destroy cadres of the breakaway rebel group led by Colonel Karuna in Eastern Sri Lanka was equipped with modern weapons.

Eastern sources which revealed this information to “Asian Tribune” and has now confirmed that this special task force is in possession of chemical weapons with instructions from the LTTE leader to use these weapons only against Karuna cadres. This specific instruction was given to the cadres, because the foreign power which provided these chemical weapons to the LTTE has reportedly obtained from the Sri Lankan rebels an assurance that they should not use these weapons against the Sri Lankan Armed Forces.
