Sri Lanka's military says a suicide bomber has blown himself up near a vehicle carrying policemen in a northern town, killing himself and a civilian and wounding eight others.
Military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara says separatist Tamil Tiger rebels were responsible for the attack Sunday in the town of Vavuniya.
He says four police in the vehicle, three nearby soldiers and a civilian bystander were wounded.
Rebel officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
