Sri Lankan Air Force fighter jets on Sunday bombed and destroyed a secret satellite communication centre of Tamil Tigers in a rebel-dominated territory as security forces killed at least six guerrillas in the island's embattled northern region.

The target of the Air Force located at Dharmapuram in northeast of Kilinochchi was considered a highly secured place for LTTE leaders as it was equipped with sophisticated satellite communication devices to coordinate the outfit's international activities, the Defence Ministry said.
