Sri Lanka rebels aim for glory

Some Tiger Tiger fighters who became good marksmen during the country's protracted civil war, now prepare to compete.

    Some Tamil Tiger rebels became good marksmen during Sri Lanka's long civil war, and now that the conflict is over, they are getting even better, with some help from their former enemies.

    More than 300 former Tamil Tigers fighters are now in rehabilitation programmes, and some are preparing to compete for their country.
