A 15 year old student and his companion were killed in a Claymore attack by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Deep Penetration Unit (DPU) in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) controlled jungle in Periya Pandivirichan at Madhu in the Mannar district Sunday, reported Voice of Tigers (VoT) Radio. The youths were out hunting when they were killed, according to VoT.

The two killed youths identified as Chandran Linton, 15, and Rasarathinam Mohan, 25, left home with two dogs for hunting Sunday around 11 a.m but failed to return at the due time. One of the dogs came home with injuries. The dog led victims' relatives to the site of the killings, added VoT.

The search party found out that one of the two Claymore mines fixed at the site had exploded killing the two youths and one of the dogs, said the radio.

The killings were reported to the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) officials who inspected the site of the SLA DPU offensive along with the resident priest of Madu Church in Mannar, said VoT.
