20 Killed in Sri Lanka Bus Blast

Feb 2, 2008 | Posted by: The Associated Press | Full story: The Associated Press

A bomb tore through a packed bus carrying civilians Saturday in central Sri Lanka, killing 20 people and wounding 50 others, the military said.

The blast inside the bus occurred at 7 a.m. in Dambulla, a town about 90 miles northeast of the capital, Colombo, said military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara, blaming separatist Tamil Tiger rebels.

The bus traveling to the northcentral town of Anuradhapura was stopped in Dambulla when the blast occurred, Nanayakkara said.

Spokesmen for the rebels could not immediately be reached for comment. But the group, listed as a terror organization by the U.S. and European Union, routinely denies responsibility for such attacks. Read more

The singhalese people must rise up against the Govvernment which is sacrificing its own people to justify the war with Tamils. I hope and pray the singhalese people wake and see the truth. To my Singhalese friends try to see it from a different angle Who are these people dying for. Dying for the stooges to stay in power. To them peoples are animal food.

Why abroad living Tamils worried about sri Lanka. All memebrs of their families live in western world together and sri lankan Tamils are welcome in Tamil Nadu. Let expelled muslims to settle down in Jaffna to harmonise peace in north Sl.

Dear fellow Sri Lankan’s. You don’t need to be Einstein or a Rocket Scientist to decipher these bombings and other atrocities deep in Sinhalese populated areas. Since some of you’ll are suffering from the “Moda Yakku”(stupid devil) syndrome by nature, let me summarize it for you.

Q: How is the LTTE infiltrating heavily armed and government controlled areas and inflicting damage to the Sinhalese people?

A: The SL Govt. it planning and staging these attacks to attract International attention, sympathy and to keep the population focused on the current issue at hand so the masses don’t turn on the government for their on going display of ineptness. This is a terrible form of psychological warfare. This is also a tactic to incite communal violence against the remaining minority population, so as to kill or scare them to leave the country so Sri Lanka can be a true Sinhalese nation as envisioned by the Singhala Urumaya sect and the rest of the undesirables.

It is amazing that all this is unfolding under the eyes of the International community and the United Nations staff seems to be masturbating in their offices at 2 UN Plaza in New York. What baffles me is that the International community is still hunting Nazi war criminals who are bed ridden due to old age. Money is spent on prosecuting them and subjecting them to jail terms they cannot endure but they won’t do anything about the indiscriminate killing of people in this day and age.

The system is seriously flawed for such a gross display of injustice towards a peoples mired is such suffering due to the actions of a democratically elected government and the only action of the International community is keep sending financial aid to the government to continue its killing of the people. All donor countries have blood in their hands too. You Bastards!

you seems to have good analytical skills for a tamil, so how do you explain the arrival of LTTE camera crew (truth tigers) at the blast of the mannar bus so quickly? They must have either planned it or at least known about the killings of civilians.

Mr.Punc,
Can I give you a small advice? Go help your people to become self sufficient in all their needs. And for you a good education is good. See even Canada with so many great schools and universities could not help you come out of your jungle mentality.
See we have 100,000 university graduates from various universities around the world. We promoted them to acquire knowledge so that they don't behave like you. Our next step is offer schlorship to Singhalese students from Sri Lanka. Don't be an illiterate idiot. We want to educate the singhalese to understand what is going on in Sri Lanka.

Massey you mean you are going to give scholarship to the Sinhalese to kindergarten. You are joking about giving them to the universities.--Hey but this is tragic bombings in Colombo, Dambuall, Madu etc. Economically LTTE is trying to cripple Sri Lanka.- or as usual it could be staged by the GOSL. The Sinhalese have been dumb for so long and have contiously belived the LTTE terrorism is destroying their country etc but do not seem to have the need to understand the cause of tamil nationlism. If they had agreed to a simple solution like Federal and provinicial governments and had kept English as the language of operation lanka would have been fine. Instead the dumb Sinhalese for cheap thrills allowed the massacres of the tamils in 1956,1977,1983 and the continous massacres of tamils following that. Now their country is a holy mess.- All the idiots in Column stating by Eliminating Prabharakran the war would be over- these idiots are always contradicting themselves.- If you read thru their papers it states that Prabhakaran is injured and he is no longer leading the LTTE etc. So if he is dead who is running the ltte now. Till a just solution is given to the tamils this issue will not be resolved. Blaming LTTE for every mess in Lanka does not resolve any issues.

1. Praba had nothing to do with Minsiters thug son running riot in Colombo
2. Praba had nothing to do with Rajapakes'son driving an Aston Marting on S***t roads of Colobmo from the ransacked treasuries of Sri Lanka.
3. Praba had nothing to do with with the Sinhalese children selling their bodies for meager income in the south to the suddas.
4. Praba had nothing to do with Rakapakse swindling 500 milion of the Tsunamil Aid money.
5. Praba has nothing to do with the government killing Sinhalese and tamil journalists
6. Praba had nothing to do with Melving running riot at Rupavahini.

You Sinahlese have systematically ruined your country thru racism and spite rising from sheer ignorance. Now please celerbrate your independece day.

Is that why over 4000 heroin tamils serve jail time for heroin charges in Canada alone?
