스리랑카서 폭탄 폭발…42명 사상 (E)


5일 스리랑카 북부지역의 만원 버스 부근에서 길가폭탄이 터져 17명의 민간인이 숨지고 25명이 다쳤다고, 스리랑카 군이 밝혔습니다.

정부는 이번 폭탄공격이 타밀 호랑이 반군의 소행이라고 비난했습니다.

이에 앞서 스리랑카 군은 북부 만나르지역과 바브니야 지역에서 4일부터 시작된 전투에서 29명의 타밀 호랑이 반군을 사살하고, 정부군도 7명이 사망했다고 말했습니다.

또 다른 사태발전으로, 국내외 인권단체들은 스리랑카 정부가 최근 소수부족인 타밀 족을 대량 검거하고 있다고 비난했습니다.

The Sri Lankan military says at least 15 civilians were killed and 25 wounded when a roadside bomb exploded near a crowded passenger bus in the north-central part of the country.

The government has blamed Tamil Tiger rebels for the explosion. No other details are immediately available.

Earlier in the day, the Sri Lankan military said its troops had killed 29 Tamil rebels in battles in the north. It said seven soldiers also were killed in the fighting, which began Tuesday in the districts of Mannar and Vavuniya and continued today (Wednesday).

In another development, international and local human rights groups are condemning the Sri Lankan government for the recent mass arrests of minority Tamils.

More than 25-hundred Tamil civilians were arrested last week during a security crackdown after two bomb attacks in Colombo killed 20 people.

Tamil rebels were blamed for the bombings.
