LTTE political office in Batticaloa bombed

[TamilNet, Sunday, 14 August 2005, 07:26 GMT]
Political office of the Liberation Tigers in Batticaloa, located inside the Sri Lanka Army held eastern town's high security area, was attacked by two unidentified men Sunday noon. The attackers, who approached the office in a motorbike, lobbed more than five grenades, one by one, into the building through the main entrance, neighbouring residents said. Five LTTE political officials who were inside the building narrowly escaped the attack, sources said.

Frontal part of the building, documents and the furniture inside the office were damaged in the attack.

The Batticaloa political office of the LTTE was attacked at least six times within the last 12 months, sources added.

The nearest police post is located at Arasady, 100 meters from the office.

LTTE says that the paramilitaries working with the Sri Lankan armed forces are behind the attacks on their political offices in SLA-held areas in the east.
