One people was killed and at least two others were injured in a suicide attack carried out by a female Tamil Tiger Wednesday morning in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo, said the military.

Officials from the Media Center for National Security said the attack happened around 8:05 a.m. (0235 GMT) at the office of a famous Tamil politician, Douglas Devananda, who is the minister of Social Services and Welfare.

It is not clear whether Devananda was in his office at the time of the attack

Originally a Tamil militant, Devananda gave up violence and is currently the leader of the Eelam People's Democratic Party.

Due to his strong opposition to the rebel Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), the rebel organization has unsuccessfully tried to assassinate him over 10 times and he remains high up on its list of targets for assassination.
