SLA resumes mortar attacks in Vavunathivu

[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 April 2006, 16:32 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) started firing mortar shells towards Liberation Tigers controlled Vavunathivu area from 11.30 a.m. Saturday, Thayamohan, Head of Batticaloa district LTTE Political Wing said. Several homes of residents of Mankikattu, Navatkudi and Puliyadikuda villages have been damaged but no one received any serious injuries, Thayamohan added.

Attacks started when residents of the area who were displaced by last week's artillery attacks, were returning to their residences. The affected people have again sought refuge at the local schools, LTTE political head added.

The mortar attacks continued for more than two hours and stopped only when members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) visited the areas attacked, according to Thayamohan.
