Tamil Tigers continue air strikes

The Times reported Sunday that the Tamil Tigers, a rebel ethnic group in Sri Lanka, carried out its third attack in just over a month yesterday. The air strike targeted fuel depots in Sri Lanka's capital, Colombo. Meanwhile, thousands of residents were gathered in outdoor venues like parks, hotels and bars to watch the cricket World Cup final on large projector screens. The Sydney Morning Herald also reported on the attack. This report said the city was plunged into darkness after the bombings and people scrambled to get to shelter. Five people were taken to the hospital according to medic reports but no one was killed. According to the Sri Lakan government, bombs dropped on one depot caused minor damage and ones dropped on another depot failed to detonate.
