[b]LTTE preparing to launch a simultaneous attack in the north and the east on Norwegian instructions – Pilliyan, Commander of Karuna's Group[/b]

[b]Colombo, 23 March, ([/b] Pillaiyan, Special Commander of the TamilEela Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (Colonel Karuna's Group) and one of the senior leaders of the Organization, told the Asian Tribune yesterday in an exclusive interview that, according to their intelligence reports, LTTE is preparing to launch a surprise attack on their formations in the East and simultaneously planning to attack the Sri Lanka security forces in the North.

He said: "The blue print for this has been prepared by the Norwegians. After launching the attack the LTTE will blame the Sri Lankan government for breaching the Ceasefire Agreement and this will be backed by the Norwegians. The main objective of the planned attack is to force the hands of President Rajapakse, with pressures from the international community, to wage a war against us."

"This," he said, "is the reason why the LTTE has suddenly come up with demand to clear the areas for the LTTE to open up the political offices in the North and East. "
