Tamil Tigers claimed the suicide mission on the Sri Lankan capital was a success.

But now the declaration about their attack on Colombo is being put to the test.

The country's government has released a video it says shows the two aircraft being shot down.

Officials say a major disaster was averted. But experts say this also shows Tigers still have the capability to strike deep into government territory.
