LTTE prepares for mass suicide; key terror leaders trapped

LTTE terrorists are preparing for a mass suicide after being effectively cut-off of escape routes, both land and sea and now encircled in a mere 3.5sq.km of land West of Vellamullivaikkal, Wanni military sources said citing intercepted LTTE communication.

According to defence observers, the LTTE senior ranks are expecting to prolong its imminent defeat resorting to such futile terror tactics using civilian hostages, new recruits and black tigers as weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). "The terrorists have no way to go and the only way out is to surrender with the security forces or to be crushed in the military advance" a military official said. Terrorists are blowing off large explosive and ammunition dumps also using stocks of white phosphorous with improvised barrel bombs to create large destruction within the hostage makeshift camps.

Meanwhile, an LTTE attempt to ram an explosive laden bus into the 58 Division forward defences failed with the bus exploding prematurely. No damages were caused to troops military said adding that at least 10 terrorists were killed due to the explosion.

During initial interrogations conducted, Soosai's wife had told with the Navy that Soosai along with LTTE leader Prabhakaran, Pottu Amman and some other key terrorists as still holed up in the small area at Vellamullivaikal.
