Colombo, 25 May, ( Four Tiger guerrillas were killed and two injured on Wednesday in an attack believed to be carried by the rebels of former LTTE Eastern Commander, “Colonel” Karuna on a LTTE bunker in Upparu near Muttur in the country’s volatile East, military sources said.

The attack which happened at 9.30 pm on 24 May, had killed four Tiger guerrillas, according to intercepted LTTE transmissions.

No casualties on the Karuna faction are reported.

Meanwhile, Tiger guerrillas exploded another claymore mine yesterday afternoon wounding one policeman in the Northern town of Jaffna.

The claymore mine is attached to a bicycle parked aside the Nallur road, a military official told the “Asian Tribune.”

The mine was detonated using a remote control device when an army truck approached.
