Two planes belonging to Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger rebels have attacked the capital Colombo, killing two people and injuring about 45, officials say. Both planes were downed, one of them hitting inland revenue offices, where the casualties occurred, officials said. The building was badly damaged. The other plane was shot down near the city's airport, which was closed. The raid comes as the army has driven the Tigers into a shrinking zone of jungle in the north of Sri Lanka. A pro-rebel website, TamilNet, said the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) had claimed what it described as "successful air raids". They involved "diving into Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Headquarters in Colombo and into the SLAF base at Katunayaka", 35km (21 miles) north of the capital, the website said.
