COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — A senior military official says Sri Lankan troops are fighting heavy battles with the rebels over the key Elephant Pass base on the edge of the Jaffna peninsula.
The official said that troops surrounded the base and entered it from the north and south on Friday. They expected to take complete control of the area soon. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
