But take the "battle" headline with a grain of salt.

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka: Several rebel boats launched a pre-dawn attack on a Sri Lankan navy outpost Wednesday, sparking a battle that killed five Tamil Tiger fighters and three sailors, the military said.
The rebel attack took place about 2:15 a.m. at a base off the coast of Mannar, near the front lines of the raging civil war that has engulfed northern Sri Lanka, military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara said.
Sailors at the base retaliated, destroying one boat and killing five rebels, while three sailors were killed, Nanayakkara said, adding that it was unclear how many rebel boats were involved.
