January 8, 2007: In the east, a major LTTE camp was captured by the army. There, they found a truck loaded with explosives, and rigged to be used as a truck bomb. This was apparently intended for a major attack in the capital.
January 6, 2007: Another LTTE suicide bomber, apparently female, attacked a bus 85 kilometers south of the capital, killing eleven, and wounding up to fifty.
January 5, 2007: An LTTE suicide bomber attacked a bus outside the capital, killing five and wounding nearly fifty others.
January 4, 2007: The army and air force continue their attacks on LTTE targets in the east (where the LTTE is rapidly losing control) and the north (where the LTTE is more powerful.) LTTE losses for December were some 2,200 killed, and many more wounded. LTTE is having a hard time recruiting new people, and has been relying more on coercion. This, however, produces troops of uncertain quality.
