SLA trooper injured in attack in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Monday, 23 August 2004, 08:45 GMT]
A Sri Lanka army soldier was injured Monday noon when unidentified gunmen fired on a foot patrol on the A 15 coastal road in Kayankerni, 46 kilometres north of Batticaloa. The soldier, Private Saman Kumara, was wounded below the knee, SLA sources in Batticaloa said.

The assailants got away when troops searched the area, they said.

Senior LTTE member Bawa and another Tiger official were killed in an ambush in this area last Friday.

LTTE sources in the east allege that elements working with the SLA were behind Bawa's murder.
