Sri Lankan troops `capture Tiger base'

Colombo - Sri Lankan soldiers attacking the Tamil stronghold of Jaffna captured an underground base, security sources said yesterday. Tamil Tiger guerrillas, fighting a rearguard action to defend Jaffna town, lost 70 fighters on Saturday, raising their death toll to more than 250 since the army resumed its push on Friday, military sources said. In Colombo, more roadblocks went up and hundreds were questioned over attacks on Saturday by suicide bombers in which 15 people died. Reuter
