[b]LTTE "intensifies" killings: Sri Lanka heading for war? [/b]

[b]Colombo, 06 December, ([/b] Sri Lanka is edging closer to war with LTTE further "intensifying" its violence in Jaffna and in the east. In Jaffna the LTTE launched its second attack today on a Sri Lankan Army (SLA) tractor in Irupalai (5 km North east of Jaffna town) killing six soldiers and seriously injuring another, who subsequently succumb to the injuries.

The victims of the incident have been identified as Lieutenant D V Muthugalage, Corporal B K Samarasinghe, soldiers S A Sumith Kumara, K M P Attanayake, K B Dayawansa, W G I N Wijetunge and H A Thilakasiri.

Simultaneously, LTTE "intensified" its attacks on the second front today in the east by attacking and killing Muslims and the rebel cadres of Col. Karuna.

Following the escalation of violence by the LTTE, the police and armed forces have been placed on high alert in and around Colombo city. The next step after attacks in Jaffna and in the east is for the LTTE suicide bombers to go on the rampage in the city of Colombo, according to security forces.
