Authorities in Sri Lanka have found the bodies of two more slain humanitarian aid workers, bringing the toll from a weekend massacre to 17 lives.
The workers were shot execution-style at their headquarters in the eastern town of Muttur. All were ethnic Tamils working for the French agency Action Against Hunger, which has been providing assistance to victims of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004.
The French aid group is suspending its mission in Sri Lanka because of the killings. The government and Tamil rebels have blamed each other for the workers' deaths.
The United States said Monday it will work with the international community to bring an end to violence in Sri Lanka.
Some information for this report was provided by AFP, and AP.
