A counter-ambush commando unit of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), killed 3 Karuna group paramilitary cadres and captured two cadres alive Friday morning around 7.30 a.m. when it launched an attack on the infiltrating five-member paramilitary group from the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) camp located in Pattiaddy, about 200 meters into the no-man zone from the SLA controlled area in the Trincomalee district, LTTE officials in Sampoor said.
Thereafter a group of SLA soldiers had rushed to the site to rescue the captured Karuna cadres. The confrontation between the LTTE and SLA went on for few minutes.
SLA soldiers retreated to their camp with the bodies of three Karuna cadres, sources said.
LTTE commandos captured two Karuna cadres who have admitted the presence of additional paramilitary cadres in the SLA camp, claimed LTTE officials in Sampoor.
