Sri Lanka says it kills 92 Tiger rebels in north

Sri Lankan troops have killed 92 rebels in the latest offensive into their northern stronghold, the island's defence ministry said on Thursday. Fighting between the military and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) has intensified since the government scrapped a six-year-old ceasefire pact in January.


"As per the military reports received from the northern battlefronts, at least 92 terrorists were killed and over 15 suffered injuries during yesterday's confrontations," The Ministry of Defence said in a statement on its Website. (Reuters)
