Blast in Colombo – Humanitarians @ Work!

August 8, 2006

Just minutes ago, a blast was reported in Dickmans Road, Bambalapitiya Sri Lanka… land like no other!

I’m waiting for it to hit the net, according to the radio (Sirasa), they’ve seen a Vehicle caught fire, and the injured been taken to Hospital.

Hmm.. maybe the vehicle caught fire on it’s own.

UPDATE :

Reports are that it’s an EPDP member with the name of P. Sivadasen. The blast has happened (reportedly) come from within the Vehicle it self.

LTTE making it clear that, they are the Only voice for Tamil People. After all when you keep bumping members of other Tamil Political parties, your bound to be the ONLY representitve, now aren’t you?

UPDATE # 2

Sivathasan NOT dead.. only injurred! An innocent School Girl, and a passenger in the Vehicle are identified as the victims.

Entire story below :

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) – A car bomb exploded in front of a girls’ school in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo on Tuesday, killing at least two people and wounding seven, the Media Centre of the Defence Ministry and police said.

Among the dead was a girl who was walking past the car when it exploded, said Rienzie Perera, a police spokesman. The identity of the other victim, whose body was inside the vehicle, was not immediately known.

Dr. Anil Jasinghe of Colombo’s National Hospital said at least seven people have been admitted with injuries.

The apparent target was S. Sivathasan, a former legislator for the Eelam People’s Democratic Party, which bitterly opposes the country’s separatist Tamil Tiger guerrillas, according to party leader Douglas Devananda.

Sivathasan, who was injured and admitted to a hospital, was near the school when the explosion occurred, Devananda said.

Officials say they suspect Tamil Tigers were behind the attack.

The EPDP renounced violence decades back and joined the country’s political mainstream. The Liberation Tiger of Tamil Eelam, who are campaigning for a separate homeland for the country’s 3.2 million Tamils, oppose the EPDP.

In July 2004, a suicide bomber targeted Devananda, who is also a government minister. The bomber detonated explosives that killed four.

Here’s the Tamil Net version of it.

A senior EPDP official and six others were wounded in a bomb explosion in Colombo around 2:00 p.m. Tuesday. The EPDP official, Sankarapillai Sivathasan, a long time EPDP advisor, a relative of EPDP leader Douglas Devandanda, and a former parliamentarian of the EPDP, was rushed to Colombo hospital. The explosion took place opposite a restaurant on Dickmans Road in Bambalapitya.

Further details are not available at the moment.

EPDP is a paramilitary group working with the Sri Lanka Army military intelligence in the Northeast SLA controlled territories and an ally of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse.

Just glancing through both articles, you’d say they are pretty much the same. But if you read it carefully you’ll notice, LTTE chose a Restaurent as a Land Mark, while the other chose a School. If your familiar with Dickmans Road, you’d realize that both are relatively close and opposite each other.

Oh also they forget to mention the loss of a School Girls life. How very HUMANITARIAN of them?

    For me it is look like LTTE murder Tamil people more than Sinhalese and Muslims. What is really going on.. do Tamil people really like to get killed? If I didn’t have any Tamil friends, then for sure I may have troubles convince myself they are not enjoying killing.
