Liberation Tigers Monday lodged a complaint with Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission that commandos of the Special Task Force (STF), the elite counter insurgency arm of the Sri Lankan armed forces, had forcibly entered the LTTE political office in Navithanveli, about 36 kilometres southwest of Batticaloa. The STF men were drunk and had caused damage to the office close to midnight Sunday, LTTE said. Meanwhile, unidentified persons opened fire towards the EPDP camp in Valaichenai Monday around noon, Police said.

No one was hurt in the firing and the gunmen got away, according to Valaichenai Police.

The EPDP camp is located in the outer defense perimeter of the Sri Lanka army garrison in the Valaichenai fisheries harbour.

EPDP is a close ally of President Chandrika Kumaratunga.
