Colombo: A major haul of weapons and ammunition belonging to the LTTE has been discovered by the Sri Lankan police in the terror group's former stronghold of Kilinochchi in the north of the country.

Over 250,000 rounds of live T56 bullets, over 190,000 rounds of MPMP bullets, anti-aircraft gun bullets, 81 mm mortars and claymore bombs were among the cache found hidden in an abandoned water well, the Kilinochchi police said.

Kilinochchi was the seat of the LTTE's parallel administration in their three decades old fight with the government troops.

Sri Lanka army's seizure of the town in January 2009 led to the eventual crushing of the separatist outfit four months later.
