Grenade lobbed at SLA checkpost in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 October 2005, 09:46 GMT]
Two motorbike-riding men lobbed a hand grenade into a Sri Lanka Army post located in front of Narikkundu kulam on Rakka Road in Jaffna around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sri Lanka Army said. The grenade fell into their bunker, the SLA sources added. No casualties were reported. Additional troops and riot police were deployed at the site following the incident, civilian sources said.

SLA sources said that their Jaffna office of 51-2 Division has lodged a complaint to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission on the incident.

The SLA checkpost is located close to St. John Bosco School and the ICRC office in Jaffna.

In the meantime, Puthur East returned to normalcy as displaced villagers were seen returning to their village following the shooting death of a resident by the SLA Friday, sources said.
