[b][Colombo, 13 January, ([/b] Sri Lanka Government
has condemned the killing of the nine Sri Lanka Navy sailors in a claymore mine attack at Chettikulam yesterday evening. "We totally condemn this attack," government spokesman and Cabinet minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said.

The Government spokesman pointedly alleged the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) for the latest attack on the Navy sailors.

He alleged, "The government has been acting with so much of restraint but the LTTE continues to violate the cease-fire agreement."

Yesterday Sri Lanka Navy sailors were traveling in three buses from the Pandukabhaya Navy Camp at Punewa towards the Gajaba and Thamenna Navy camps in Mannar, when they were ambushed.
