Three days of clashes between security forces and ethnic Tamil rebels in Sri Lanka's volatile north and east have killed at least 95 people, the military said. The military launched a major assault on Sunday to retake a Tiger-held enclave in the east, which it claimed posed a threat to a strategic naval base in Trincomalee district. The military said 79 combatants had been killed in the combined army, navy and air force operation. The rebels said 82 people, including 20 civilians, were killed in intense shelling and airstrikes.
