Sri Lanka shuts schools indefinitely after bombing

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka has ordered the indefinite shutting of all schools amid fears of reprisals after an airforce bombing of a rebel-run orphanage where 61 children were killed.

Schools across the country will not open on Tuesday as the authorities feared they could be a potential target for the rebel Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), a government official said.

"The government officially announced that the August vacation will be advanced to Tuesday instead of next week," the official said.
