Tamil Tiger rebels blocked Muslim civilians fleeing fighting in the island's north-east and killed at least 100 of them, the defence ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The victims were shot dead as they tried to escape fighting in the Muslim town of Mutur on Friday night, the ministry said.

"While displaced families were fleeing Mutur seeking safety, the Tigers blocked them at Pachchanoor area and killed over 100, including women, youth and children during night of Friday," the ministry said.
