COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, May 25, (Agencies): The defeated Tamil Tiger rebels have confirmed that their supreme leader was killed in the group’s final battle against Sri Lankan troops. The almost mythic com

mander, Velupillai Prabhakaran, led a terror-driven Tamil insurrection in Sri Lanka for more than a quarter century. Last week the government declared it finally killed Prabhakaran and proclaimed victory against his Tamil Tigers, crushing the rebellion that the UN estimates cost between 80,000 to 100,000 lives.
