Sri Lanka: October 1, 2000


mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"> Rebel attacks in Jaffna continued, leaving four soldiers dead and 41 wounded. Rebels lost over 50 dead.

Rebel artillery has been hitting populated areas, in an attempt to scatter the population before the October 10th elections. The rebels appear to be short of manpower, with many of their fighters apparently recently recruited teenagers.
