Tamil Tigers building up capacity for arms shipments

LTTE had constructed two one-kilometre (0.6-mile) paved runways between 2002 and 2007. Jane's said that one of those runways was being extended to two kilometres. LTTE has developed facilities that can serve air logistics. One shipment, at least, of military rounds remains stranded in an unidentified Central Asian country because Russia had intervened to prevent its delivery.

Rajapaksa and Singh seem to be in agreement that the war must go on, as long as due regard is given to the safety of innocent Tamils. Expect little Indian government interference as long as New Delhi remains satisfied that is the case, which a lot of people aren't satisfied about.
