A Sri Lankan air strike targeting a meeting of top rebel officials early Friday killed the Tamil Tigers' political chief, the guerrilla group announced. The attack, which took place about 6 a.m., killed S.P. Tamilselvan, the head of the Tigers' political wing, according to a statement on an official rebel Web site.
