TAMIL REBELS KILL 10 IN TRUCK AMBUSH

Tamil separatist guerrillas, who have been talking peace with the government, ambushed a military truck and killed 10 soldiers in eastern Sri Lanka on Monday, military sources said.

They said the soldiers were returning to their camp at Kalmunai in Ampara district after buying food in a market when gunmen of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam guerrilla group opened fire.
