A Sri Lanka Army sergeant was injured when a group of people threw stones at troops in Nelliady in Jaffna Thursday night, the SLA said. A petrol bomb was thrown at another Army detachment in the area earlier in the evening, the Army said.

A group of unidentified men had lobbed a petrol bomb at the Army detachment in the general area of Nelliady on 26 May 2005 around 8.45 p.m. but the bomb did not explode, the Army said, adding it suspected the Liberation Tigers.

“Later, around 9.15 p.m. another group of people went on pelting stones towards the troops at Malai Junction near Pulleyaradi Kovil in the general area of Nelliady,” it said.

Sergeant Palitha Kusum Kumara received injuries in the pelting.

The SLA said it would inform the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) of the incident and that Nelliady Police are conducting investigations.
