Colombo (ANTARA News/Reuters) - Sri Lanka`s military will act against any soldiers who may have committed war crimes or other excesses in the last months of its 25-year civil war, the island nation`s influential defence secretary said on Thursday.

Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa`s comments come as President Mahinda Rajapaksa, his elder brother, prepares to make public next month the findings of a commission that probed the end of the separatist war with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), which Sri Lanka won in May 2009. (*)
