    61 schoolgirls killed in air strikes by Sri Lankan military

    More than 61 schoolgirls were killed and 150 wounded when Sri Lankan Kfir jets bombed a children's home compound in Mullaitivu district Monday morning where schoolgirls from Mullaithivu district were attending a two-day residential course on first aid. Officials of the Liberation Tigers’ Peace Secretariat, briefing reporters in Kilinochchi, described the attack as “a horrible act of terror” by the Sri Lankan armed forces.They condemned the “deliberate, cold-blooded and inhumane” targeting of the schoolgirls compound by the daylight air raid. Liberation Tigers called upon the UN’s child agency, UNICEF, and international truce monitors to visit the scene of the carnage.
