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.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
