Sri Lanka recovers 12 Tamil Tiger fighter planes in Eritrea

Kumaran Pathmanathan's (KP) arrest, interrogation, and subsequent investigations have revealed Eritrea's involvement in aiding the Tamil Tigers.

Eritrea is a African nation bordering Ethiopia, and has long been a safe haven for terrorist networks and pirates. Osama Bin Laden's Al Qaeda has been operating from the impoverished African nation for a decade, or more.

With information obtained by Pathmanathan, Sri Lanka's intelligence agency has been preoccupied, of late, with destroying the Tigers' arms networks and financial networks overseas.

12 Tamil Tiger (LTTE) aircraft have been located parked at the Eritrea airport. Sri Lanka hopes to open an embassy in Eritrea, and is also in talks with the Eritrean government in order to confiscate the planes.
