Sinhala goons flock to A11 road in Welikanda

[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 June 2006, 14:47 GMT]
Hundreds of armed Sinhala goons flocked to the A-11 road in Welikanda around 7:45 p.m. Thursday, after a protest against the presence of the paramilitary group camps and the massacre of 13 Sinhala workers on Monday in the village of Omadiyamadu, once used by the paramilitary Karuna group. Senior Police officer in Batticaloa, S.M. Keerigala, has requested the police stations to block the traffic along A11 till normalcy until normalcy returned to the area, Police sources said. The traffic between Colombo and Batticaloa remains cancelled and Welikanda remains tense.

Hundreds of Sinhala villagers earlier demonstrated against the presence of paramilitary camps and the killings of 13 Sinhala workers on Monday.

Further details are not available at the moment.
