Two Christian priests were killed in a Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) airstrike on 4 June whilst travelling through Kanakampikaikkulam in the Kilinochchi district said sources close to the LTTE in Europe today.
Kfir jet bombers of the SLAF had carried out the airstrike said the sources.
The two missionaries were named as Dominic and Christianpillai said the sources. The pair were with the Cannan mission they said.
It had taken time to identify the victims as their bodies had been badly disfigured in the airstrike said the sources.
