Transport restriction in Vanni

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 June 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The army announced today that transport between the Sri Lankan Army (SLA) controlled and the LTTE controlled areas in the Vanni, through Madhu junction, 30 km west of Vavuniya on the Vavuniya-Mannar road, will not be permitted until further notice.

The Army has also asked NGOs operating in the Vanni to restrict their movements to within the areas under its control.

However, the announcement did not refer to travel through the Uyliankulam junction, said sources in Vavuniya.

Madhu junction is generally used by NGOs, ambulances and other transport vehicles, while the Uylankulam junction is used by civilians.

Meanwhile SLA troops and the LTTE continued to exchange mortar fire in the general area of Mankulam, said SLA sources.

However, the troops did not suffer any casualties, they added.
