Feb 24, Colombo: A suspected LTTE suicide bomber on a bicycle rammed into a motorcycle in at Kalawanchikudi in Batticaloa this morning killing three including the bomber.

A TMVP spokesman said two of their political activists who were canvassing in the area for the upcoming elections were killed as they tried to inspect a suspicious looking man riding a bicycle.

Defence sources said a woman who was in the vicinity was also injured and admitted to the hospital.
