Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has alleged that "some groups who said they did not have money to fight the war, and signed ceasefire agreements with the LTTE, had money to give the LTTE,” the Sri Lankan state-run paper Dinamina quoted Mr. Rajapaksa as saying in its front page lead story on Thursday.

"Today with the war over, no one can point a finger and say Sri Lanka does not have the money to develop itself," Mr. Rajapaksa, who is planning to extend his term beyond two terms of presidency, was quoted as saying by Dinamina.
