Two Tamil guerrillas and a Sri Lankan soldier were killed in continuing clashes in the war-torn country's north, as troops recovered weapons, explosives, and a suicide-bomber vest, the military said Saturday. The latest fighting between the Tamil Tigers and the military occurred near Madu village, about 220 kilometers northwest of the capital Colombo, the Defense Ministry's information center said in a statement. The Madu clashes were the latest in a surge of violence in the country's north and east that have killed 5,000 people in the past 18 months, shattering a Norway-brokered cease-fire signed five-years ago with strong international backing.
