[TamilNet, Tuesday, 27 December 2005, 15:32 GMT]
Unidentified armed men forced into the parking garage located close to the offices of Halo Trust, located at the junction of Nallur Cross Street and Navalar Road, and drove away two vehicles belonging to the NGO after tying the guards Tuesday afternoon, sources in Jaffna said.

No information is available on where the vehicles were taken.

Following the robbery of vehicles, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police cordoned and searched the surrounding areas. No one was arrested in the search.

Prior to this incident, a computer and land mine clearing equipments were also stolen from the same compound.

After an earlier incident of vehicle theft, Halo Trust premises were guarded by police. However, police withdrew from this duty over security concerns for their personnel. Subsequently, the security for the Halo Trust premises were provided by private guards.

Halo Trust is an NGO currently involved in demining operations in Jaffna district.
