A mine exploded in the northern Sri Lanka city of Jaffna on Monday, killing at least four soldiers and wounding two others, the military said.
The victims were moving in a van when the Claymore mine exploded, military spokesman, Brig. Prasad Samarasinghe said. He said the attack was carried out by suspected Tamil Tiger rebels.
Hours earlier, a grenade exploded near the newly opened office of a breakaway faction of the Tamil Tiger rebels in the country's east.
The blast occurred in Batticaloa just hours after the group, which has formed a political wing, had opened the office. There was no reports of casualties, reports the AP.
