'Dozens dead' in Sri Lanka clash

A sea battle between Tamil Tigers and Sri Lankan government forces has left at least 45 people dead, the navy says. At least 15 sailors are missing after rebels sank a gunboat off the north coast, while at least 30 Tigers were killed in the attack, a spokesman said.

The rebels said only four Sea Tigers were killed when the navy attacked them during a training exercise. But European peace monitors blamed the rebels for a "gross violation" of the 2002 ceasefire. About 200 people have died in soaring violence in the past month alone.

We've already discussed whether we (the intl. community) should intervene in Sudan or Zimbabwe. But what about Sri Lanka? Seems to me to be in dire need of a but of force to quieten things down followed by a PKO. Any thoughts?
