Train Bombs Kill 35

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka ) -- Two bombs exploded in a packed commuter train in suburban Colombo on Wednesday, killing at least 35 people and wounding dozens.


The attack occurred shortly after the army began a counterattack against Tamil rebels who overran a military base hundreds of kilometers away.


The bombs exploded as the rush-hour train was halted at Dehiwala, a middle-class area 10 kilometers south of the capital at an hour when workers were returning home from their jobs.
