Tamil Tiger ‘regret’ over assassination of Rajiv Gandhi

Mr Gandhi was opposition leader at the time of his death

 

The BBC’s Ethirajan Anbarasan says the rebels’ expression of regret may be linked to their increased international isolation after recent bans by the European Union and Canada.

He says the rebels feel they need some sort of support from India, which once armed and supported them.

"As far as that event is concerned, I would say it is a great tragedy, a monumental historical tragedy for which we deeply regret," Mr Balasingham said.
