Prabhakaran cancels "wait and observe", as promise

[b]Prabhakaran cancels "wait and observe", as promised. Army cancels talks with LTTE[/b]

[b]Colombo, 06 December, ([/b] TamilNet and Puithinam two pro-LTTE websites -- have reported that the talks between the Security forces and the LTTE have been cancelled at the last minute by the Sri Lankan Peace Secretariat. Jaffna Commander, Maj. Gen. Sunil Tennakoon was scheduled to meet the Jaffna District Political Head of the LTTE C. Illamparuthi on Monday evening. The meeting was to discuss the deteriorating ground situation in which the LTTE was accused of killing Army personnel in Jaffna . In the east the LTTE has gone on a spree of killing Muslims.

Military analysts are puzzled as to why Velupillai Prabhakaran has decided to attack provocatively, both in the north and the east, immediately after announcing in his Heroes' Day speech that he would "wait and observe" before "intensifying" his next war.

The Sri Lankan government has called on the international community to condemn the escalation of violence by the LTTE. The LTTE attacked and killed six soldiers on Sunday.
