June 01, 1986

At least 12 people were killed and 40 were injured by a bomb that exploded in a passenger train in a suburb of Colombo, capital of Sri Lanka. The blast in Veyangoda followed two bombings in Sri Lanka on Friday that killed 36 people. The government suspects Tamil separatist guerrillas of all three explosions. The guerrillas want to set up an independent state for Tamils in the island nation's northern and eastern provinces.
