Colombo, Feb 3, 2008 : A crude bomb went off inside a zoo in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo on February 3 wounding four visitors. The military blamed the Tamil Tiger rebels for the blast.

The explosion near a bird enclosure, a day ahead of the ceremonies to mark the country's Independence Day, was probably aimed at scaring off residents of the capital. The blast also came a day after a blast killed 18 people and injured more than 50 civilians in the town of Dambulla.
