May 7, 2006 (AFP) - Sri Lanka clamped an indefinite curfew across the restive northern peninsula of Jaffna Sunday ahead of protests over military killings of suspected Tamil Tiger rebels, officials said.

The security forces and the police began imposing the curfew and the authorities will not open the main entry and exit point to rebel-held territory around Jaffna, a military official said.

The move followed reports that civilians planned a demonstration Monday to protest last week's killing of seven men who the army said were rebels.

Tiger guerrillas denied the allegation and said the victims were Tamil civilians.
