LTTE leader held in U.S.

Colombo: A top LTTE leader in the United States has been arrested for raising funds to support terror activities back home. Karunakaran Kandasamy, also known as Karuna, was arrested in Queens, New York, on Wednesday, the U.S. embassy here said. "The arrest is the latest in ongoing investigation of the terrorist group's reliance on individuals in the U.S. as a major source for money, arms, and military technology," the embassy said in a statement.

The arrest was part of a U.S. crackdown against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which is a designated terrorist organisation since October 1997. — PTI
