Two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were injured in a Claymore attack that targetted a road clearing patrol at Nelliyadi in the Vadamaradchi sector of the Jaffna peninsula, around 9 a.m., Monday, Police sources said. Seven youths, traveling in two auto-rikshaw vehicles from the nearby Raja Village, were shot and killed by the Sri Lanka Army troopers on May 04 after a grenade attack on a SLA camp in the area.

The Claymore attack took place near the new building of the local administrative body, the Pradeshiya Sabha, at Navalar Madam.

The troops cordoned off the area and conducted a search operation.

All transport through Nelliyadi on the Jaffna-Pt.Pedro road was brought to a halt for more than two hours, sources in the area said.
