Sri Lankan troops advancing in the north of the island have found an underground bunker complex believed to have been a home of the leader of the Tamil Tiger rebels, the defence ministry said on Tuesday.

The ministry said the bunker had electricity generators, air conditioning and medical supplies, and was hidden in a coconut plantation in the district of Mullaittivu.

There was no sign of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran.
