|Tamil guerrillas opposed to the government of the Sinhalese majority in Sri Lanka, attacked a convoy about 100 miles north of Colombo. The guerrillas killed 127 people and wounded 60. With the agreement of the Sri Lankan government, India sent peacekeeping forces to Northern Sri Lanka in July. That force grew to 40,000 men. By the time India withdrew its forces at the end of 1989, one thousand had been killed and three thousand wounded.
