Tamil Tiger Air Corps Strikes for Second Time

The Sri Lankan group Tamil Tiger's small air unit has struck again, as reported here by the BBC:
The rebels said they used two aircraft and insisted Palaly base was hit. The air force said there was one plane and it had stopped it reaching its target.

Experts say the Tigers could have as many as five light aircraft, smuggled into the country in pieces to be assembled in jungle bases.

Claims and counterclaims of success are typical of this struggle in which thousands have died and both sides have well-honed media systems.
