COLOMBO, June 5 (Xinhuanet) -- Two people suspected to be members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) were killed in Colombo, Sri Lanka's capital on Sunday, the police said.

They were killed in the north Colombo area of Kochchikade around 5:30 a.m. local time (2330 GMT, Saturday) on Sunday.

The police suspected the two people, arriving in the capital from the northern city of Jaffna, are members of the LTTE.

According to the police, a T56 rifle was used in the killing and the assassins who arrived in a vehicle fired at them when the victims were walking on the road.

In the Eastern Province, a key member of the breakaway Ail Tiger faction was gunned down Saturday night at Welikanda area while on his way to the town of Valaichchenai.

The police said the mainstream LTTE group might be behind the attack.

The killings in Colombo come in the wake of the murder of a topmilitary intelligence officer by the Tigers on Tuesday. Enditem
