Shootout Between Troops & Militants In Sri Lanka Kills 15, Including Six Children

According to a report by Reuters, on Saturday, a military spokesman said that a gun battle between troops and suspected Islamist militants on Sri Lanka's east coast left 15 dead, including six children, just six days after a series of bombings claimed the lives of over 250 people.

The shootout reportedly erupted at a safe house in Sainthamaruthu in Ampara district, to the south of the Sri Lankan town of Batticaloa, site of one of the Easter Sunday blasts which have been claimed by Islamic State.
