[TamilNet, Sunday, 18 June 2006, 13:32 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers have established a new camp in an area between two schools along Jaffna-KKS Road near Mallakam, Mallakam residents said. Soldiers evicted elderly civilian owners from the house last week and have setup the camp in nearly half an acre (10 larchams) of land overnight, including road blocks, local residents said.
The camp is located in between Chunnakam Nageswary Vidiyalayam and Mallakam High School nearly two hundred meters from both schools.
Parents in the area fear increased harassment to school going children in Mallakam, sources said.
