LTTE Leader Arrested

Via CT Blog -

Yesterday, Sri Lankan officials announced the arrest of the new leader of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam (LTTE), Kumaran Pathmanathan (also known as KP or Selvarasa Pathmanathan). This is a major blow to the organization, especially coming on the heels of the major battlefield defeat that it suffered in May.

Of special relevance is a profile of Pathmanathan that Rohan Gunaratna contributed to the Center for Terrorism Research's newly-released report Terrorism in the West 2008, which I co-authored. To read the entire report, click here.
