Apr 10, Colombo: Sri Lankan authorities are interrogating an overseas leader of the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorist organization, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) arrested recently when he entered the country.

Sri Lanka's Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) of police is questioning the senior LTTE leader Nathagoopan who was arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport three weeks ago while entering the country after his deportation from Malaysia.
