Sri Lankan security forces Saturday afternoon recovered two live claymore mines at a place close to Swami Malai, a resettled Tamil village in Thambalakamam division about 27 km off northwest of east port town along Trincomalee-Kandy main road. Both were defused by the army bomb disposal squad. Police sources said.

Additional government troops rushed to the site and conducted a house-to-house search operation and arrested a Tamil girl. She was taken in for further interrogation. Police are searching for two more persons in connection with the incident, police sources said.

Security forces last week recovered a live claymore mine in Naduthivu village in Kinniya division, police sources said.
