Earlier today an LTTE official told a pro-Tamil website that the Tiger chief was still alive. "I wish to inform the global Tamil community distressed witnessing the final events of the war that our beloved leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran is alive and safe," www.TamilNet.com quoted LTTE diplomatic head Selvarajah Pathmanathan as saying. Sri Lanka's army commander on Tuesday said Tamil Tiger leader's Prabhakaran's body had been found and positively identified in the morning.

Some of the more than 100,000 civilians that have fled the area held by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), hold food given by government soldiers as they walk down a road towards a temporary refugee camp in the town of Putumatalan located near the 'No Fire Zone' in northern Sri Lanka April 24, 2009. The Tamil Tigers declared a unilateral ceasefire on Sunday, but Sri Lanka dismissed it as a "joke" and said only a surrender would stop troops from finishing the last battle in Asia's longest modern war. The Tigers' truce declaration came as the U.N.'s top humanitarian chief was in the Indian Ocean island to press for the protection of tens of thousands of people trapped in the apparent final conventional battle of a war that started in 1983.

Government soldiers and the LTTE rebels continue to fight the apparent endgame of Asia's longest-running war despite calls to protect an estimated 50,000 civilians still trapped in an area controlled by the LTTE. Military spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara said operations to finish Asia's longest-running war would not let up, adding troops were moving toward the rebel pocket where the LTTE's leader, Vellupillai Prabhakaran, is believed to be hiding.

The United Nations said on Monday Tamil Tiger rebels forcibly recruited another of its local workers in Sri Lanka's war zone along with three dependents of U.N. staff, including a 16-year-old girl. The UN said the forced conscriptions came at the weekend, when nearly 2,000 people fled Sri Lanka's shrinking war zone as troops fought towards the final showdown in a 25-year war with the separatist Tamil Tigers.
