A glimpse of the deteriorating situation in Sri Lanka

This is a video from Al-Jazeera English about the tactics used by the Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka.

In recent days, the fighting in Sri Lanka has sharply escalated as government soldiers and Tamil rebels battle each other for control of the northern Jaffna Peninsula. Dozens of civilians have also died in addition to the many combatants.

Last week, some 27 Sinhalese civilians were killed when suspected Tamil rebels ambushed their bus in the central part of the country.

What these "tigers" do is serve as rolemodels to other terrorists. The tactics they have created (like the suicide attack) have been copied by others.
