[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 October 2003, 18:06 GMT]
Night curfew which was in force on Thursday and Friday was lifted from Saturday and normalcy returned to Kinniya town in Trincomalee district after two days' unrest, sources said.

Meanwhile the Trincomalee district Senior Superintendent of Police Mr. Upali Hewage Saturday appealed to Muslim religious leaders of Kinniya at a conference at the SLMM Trincomalee office to co-operate with the security establishment in maintaining law and order in Kinniya.

The conference was held in the presence of the SLMM Trincomalee Mr.Abdel Burkan, sources said.

The officers in charge of the police stations in Chinabay, Kinniya and Alankerni attended the conference.

The unrest in Kinniya began Thursday with the hartal called by a group of Muslims to condemn the abduction of a cart with bulls by unknown persons. The Muslim group had claimed that LTTE cadres had abducted the cart. However LTTE denied it as a baseless accusation, sources said.
