COLOMBO, Apr 17: Suspected Tamil Tiger rebels killed four Sri Lankan soldiers in a claymore fragmentation mine ambush today, an army source said, as violence on the island continued to worsen.

''It was a claymore attached to a three-wheeler (auto-rickshaw),'' the source said from the northern town of Vavuniya, just south of rebel territory, where the attack occurred.

''Four army people were killed.'' Another army source in the northern town of Jaffna said another claymore mine had exploded prematurely there, killing the suspected Tiger rebel who was carrying it.
