Co-Chairs express deep regret over Kilinochchi bombing

The Tokyo Co-Chair (EU, Japan, Norway and the US) ambassadors in Sri Lanka express their deep regret over the bombing of a house in Kilinochchi on 2 November 2006 that resulted in the death of five civilians. The explosion also damaged the Kilinochchi District Hospital and caused patients to flee.

The Co-Chairs expect both the Government of Sri Lanka and the LTTE to refrain from military action.
