Attack on Sri Lanka hospital kills 64

Artillery shells hit a makeshift hospital in Sri Lanka's northern war zone Saturday, killing at least 64 civilians, according to a government doctor and a rebel-linked Web site.
The TamilNet Web site accused government forces of shelling the hospital at Mullivaaykkaal.
Military spokesman Brig. Udaya Nanayakkara denied the accusation, saying soldiers were only using small arms as they pushed forward to seize the remaining territory held by separatist Tamil Tigers along a small coastal strip in the island's northeast.
