30 killed in LTTE suicide attack, at Vishvamadu

A female Tamil Tiger suicide bomber hiding among a group of civilians fleeing Sri Lanka's war zone blew herself up on Monday, killing at least 28 people and wounding 90, Srilanka military said.
"Two officers and 18 others were killed from the army, two officers injured and 48 others injured. Eight civilians were killed and 40 others injured. Many of them are women and children," military spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara said.
Underscoring the challenge the military faces in separating combatants from civilians as the war moves to a final showdown, officials said the bomber was in a group of people being checked for weapons by soldiers when she set off the bomb.
"We are trying to save Tamil people, but LTTE is not allowing us to do that and they have exploded a suicide bomb among civilians," Media Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa told .

Hey prashanth!
Are you a terrorist ?
Or have you misleaded from wrong information?
You should come to srilanka and ask from tamils who were now fleeing from LTTE controlled areas, they will tell you how cruel LTTE and how supportive Srilanka army and all security forces.
