Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers on a road clearing patrol discovered a claymore mine concealed in the shrub jungle along the Chenkaladi main road near Sellam Theater in Batticaloa Eravur Police division at 11:50 a.m. Thursday, security sources said.

The claymore may have been intended to be used against a SLA convoy that was to use to depart Batticaloa towards Polannaruwa later on Thursday, sources added.

Earlier, two claymore mines were recovered in Aarumuhathan Kudiyiruppu and Mayilambaveli areas by other road clearing patrols of the SLA.

Chenkalady is located 15 km north of Batticaloa town.
