A bomb exploded in a residential neighborhood of this northeastern Sri Lankan town Monday, killing four civilians and wounding four Sri Lankan navy officers, police and witnesses said.
The bomb apparently was aimed at a vehicle carrying the naval officers when it exploded, killing the four civilian bystanders, said a police officer, who identified himself as the area's chief inspector. He did not give his name.
There was a pool of blood on the road, as residents and police tried to help. The officer blamed the separatist Tamil Tiger rebels for the attack, reports the AP.
