Sri Lanka army chief in Singapore for treatment after bomb attack

June 18, 2006 (AFP) – Sri Lanka’s army chief Sarath Fonseka who survived a suicide bomb assassination attempt two months ago has been flown to Singapore for medical treatment, military officials said Sunday. Lieutenant General Fonseka, who was critically wounded in the bomb attack carried out inside the tightly-guarded army headquarters here on April 25, was taken abroad at the weekend, officials said. A woman pretending to be pregnant entered the army hospital inside the military compound to carry out the attack in which 11 people were killed while Fonseka escaped with abdominal injuries.
