Tamil Tiger rebels detonated a roadside bomb near Sri Lankan forces on a foot patrol Sunday, wounding four, and shot to death an electricity board employee in an overnight attack, the military said. The roadside explosion, on a major supply route in the eastern Trincomalee district, wounded a soldier, a guard and two civilians, the Defense Ministry's Media Center for National Security said. All four were being treated in a hospital, it said. An employee with the Celyon Electricity Board was killed and two others were wounded in the troubled northern Jaffna peninsula on Saturday night when a company vehicle came under rebel fire, the military said.
