Powerful blasts destroyed two large electricity supply transformers in the heart of Colombo's business district in the early hours of the morning today.

Timed explosive devices appear to have been fixed to the transformers on New Moor Street and Main Street in down town Colombo said Police sources.

Vehicles and a shop near the transformers were damaged by the impact of the blast sources.

Power supply to the area has been cut off as a consequence. Police said that they suspected the Liberation Tigers for the explosions.
