The cause of death is not known as the bodies were highly decomposed.

Meanwhile, the body of a young man from Manthivil between 20-25 years of age, was handed over to the Jaffna hospital this afternoon by Sri Lankan Police in Kodikamam. The youth had gun shot wounds in his head, chest and left leg.

Sources said the body is suspected to be that of a Liberation Tiger who was killed in a confrontation with the Sri Lankan army at Manthivil in the Thenmaradchi sector of Jaffna.
