Colombo, Dec 25:

A Tamil legislator was shot dead by unidentified gunmen during midnight Christmas mass at a church in Sri Lanka's East, police said.

The attackers fired at Joseph Pararajasingham, 71, from close range while he was at the St Michael's church at Batticaloa, 303 kilometres east of the capital, police said adding, the politician's wife escaped with injuries.

They said at least eight others were injured. Pararajasingham's bodyguards too had opened fire, police said.

He became a Member of Parliament in 1990 succeeding Sam Thambimuttu who was gunned down by suspected Tamil Tiger rebels.

However, Pararajasingham represented the Tamil national alliance which is seen as a ***** of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

That is so unbelievable. I mean the guy was at mass when he was shot?!
This may sound naive, but what sort of person would shot someone on their day of worship? :mad:

Terrorism on big occasion, to divert attention, create fear :fiery:How does one go about defeating something like that?

Going to war with guys like these only creates more terrorists.
It's quite a conundrum.
To win in this sort of fight the terrorists would have to be made to appear obsolete, and thus unnecessary.
Just thinking out loud.
