Wattewewa police station attacked

[TamilNet, Monday, 04 May 1998, 23:59 GMT]
One home-guard was killed and two policemen injured, when the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) attacked a police post at Wattewewa, within the Madirigiriya police division in the Polonnaruwa District, around 12:30 a.m. last night, said sources in Valaichenai.

The village of Wattewewa is northeast of Polonnaruwa and part of the Mahaweli Development scheme area.

However it is known as a 'border village' in that it is on the border of the territory where the LTTE is active and the areas which are under the control of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA).

Police sources confirmed that the Wattewewa police post had come under attack from the LTTE, but that attack was beaten off.
