Pak team on Tiger trail

A top level team from Pakistan is now in Colombo to obtain details of Tiger guerrilla links in the attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team in Lahore on March 3.

The four-member team led by Malik Mohamed Iqbal, Additional Inspector General of Police (Punjab Province) had a lengthy discussion with Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, on Friday. However, no details of the discussions were immediately available.

Reported links by the LTTE in the attack on the Sri Lanka cricketers surfaced during talks between President Mahinda Rajapaksa and Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in Libya.

There have been conflicting reports on who made the revelation of guerrilla links in the Lahore attack. Most media reports in Pakistan said President Rajapaksa had told Premier Gilani of the Tiger guerrilla links.
