?We couldn?t find any sign of military installations or weapons,? Mr. Henricsson said. ?This was not a military installation, we can see.?
But the Sri Lankan government?s official spokesman, Minister Keheliya Rambukwella, insisted the bombed site was a Tamil Tiger training camp.
?We have complete proof,? he said.
?We will show it to the relevant authorities,? Minister Rambukwella said, without elaborating.
He said the accusations that innocent schoolgirls had been killed ?was purely a propaganda exercise
by the LTTE
to counter their defeats in the North and East.?
He repeated that the government would show ?print proof? to ?any person or organisation? But he did not elaborate what the proof was.
Meanwhile some media in Colombo began reporting that schools would be closed indefinitely from 4 p.m. Monday onwards. The reports quoted government announcements, but no official statement has been distributed yet.
