Yesterday the Sri Lankan government claimed that LTTE chief Prabhakaran along with his top commanders had been killed, while fleeing from the war zone.
A pro LTTE web site claims that Prabhakaran is alive and preparing for a final counter offensive.
Some scribes proclaim that the photograph alleged to be that of the dead body of Prabhakaran published by the Sri Lankan army does not resemble that of Prabhakaran. It could have been that of Charles Anthony, son of Prabhakaran.
Rumours are rife that Prabhakaran is still alive and fighting fit.
