The air force has been hitting rebel columns caught in the open while the navy has prevented the rebels from landing reinforcements along the coast. A Russian AN-36 transport, chartered by the Sri Lankan government, crashed in central Sri Lanka while transporting casualties from the Jaffna peninsula area.
