Feb 20, Colombo: Suspected Tamil Tigers attacked an Army guard post at Dambekote in the Buttala area this morning and killed three soldiers who were guarding the post, the military said. The small guarding unit was along the Kataragama - Butthala main road.

Additional troops have already been sent to tighten the security in the area and a search operation is now underway, defence sources said.

Recently the area has come under frequent LTTE attacks as the Sri Lankan military has stepped up its campaign to liberate the Wanni region in the North.
