Sri Lankan troops have recovered the birth certificate, horoscope and albums of LTTE supremo Velupillai Prabhakaran and his son Charles Antony in Pudukudiyyurippu in northern war zone.

During search operations, troops of the 53 division unearthed the birth certificate, horoscopes and albums of the LTTE leader and his family, Sri Lankan army officials told visiting foreign journalists, who immediately rushed to see and take pictures of the documents.

The birth certificates of Prabhakaran and his son Antony were neatly laminated and kept for public view.

54-year-old Prabhakaran had reportedly buried these documents before he fled from his residence in Pudukudiyiruppu east and Sri Lankan troops encircled the rebels in a one square kilometre area, which was also subsequently brought under army control.

The visiting journalists were also allowed access to some photo albums which had group photos of the LTTE leader with his wife, son and daughter.
