'Tamil Tigers killed' in new clash

At least 10 Tamil fighters die in fight with army, Sri Lankan defence ministry says.

    The latest clashes raise the number of LTTE fighters killed by Sri Lankan troops to 3,614, according to the country's defence ministry.

     

    The ministry says that 272 security force personnel have died in the fighting.

    The defence ministry's death toll cannot be independently verified as the government prevents media and human rights workers from entering areas where combat is taking place.
