Two persons believed to be members of the Intelligence Wing of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) attacked by unknown assailants were rescued from an isolated area about five hundred meters from Nunavil Junction in Chavakachcheri with serious knife inflicted wounds, around 7pm Friday, security sources in Jaffna said. The injured were admitted to the Palay Army Hospital.

One of the injured is later reported to have succumbed to the injuries, unconfirmed reports from the area said.

The site where the incident had taken place is situated close to a large army camp and the office of a local non-governmental organization, civil sources said.

Soon after the recovery of the injured persons, soldiers located in the area are alleged to have attacked civilians in the area.

Traffic from Kaithady to Jaffna along Jaffna-Kandy came to a standstill, sources said.
