Two killed, five injured in bus bomb blast in Colombo; Tigers kill 35 in Lanka Naval base

Colombo, May 24 : Two Sri lankan army soldiers were killed and five others were injured in a bomb blast on a bus in Colombo on Thursday:

The Tigers reportedly blew up a motorcycle packed with explosives as the military bus passed Colombo's Pettah commercial district just outside the capital's main harbour, police said.

The Colombo attack came just hours after the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) staged a pre-dawn raid on a strategic Naval base at Delft, an islet off the northern Jaffna peninsula, and claiming to have killed 35 sailors.

The Sri Lankan military confirmed the rebel attack, saying the Tigers had used about 15 boats, including three so-called 'suicide boats', but the Army provided no details about casualties.

The latest violence came after the International Red Cross said Wednesday it had pulled its staff away from frontlines dividing government and rebel forces amid an escalation in the fighting across the island nation.
