    The Tamil Tigers have yet to confirm the deaths.
     
    There has been an escalation in violence in recent months around the Tamil Tiger's northern mini-state.
     
    The government has promised to deconstruct the mini-state and announced four months ago that it had cleared the Eastern Province of Tamil fighters, but fighting has continued.
