Lanka sets 24-hour deadline for LTTE, asks it to surrender by Tuesday

Colombo: Closing in on the last Tamil Tiger base, Sri Lanka Monday ordered rebel chief Velupillai Prabhakaran and his fighters to surrender by Tuesday noon or face death.
"We have issued the last and final 24-hour ultimatum to Prabhakaran and his group to surrender," defence ministry spokesman Keheliya Rambukwella told reporters Monday.
"The ultimatum began this noon (Monday and) will expire tomorrow noon. Otherwise they will have to face the military course of action," he said.
The ultimatum to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) came after about 30,000 civilians fled Sri Lanka's northern war zone as troops moved deep into the last Tamil Tiger stronghold in Mullaitivu district.
