15 000 Tamil people stranded in Killiveddy

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 August 2006, 07:55 GMT]
About fifteen thousand Tamil people gathered in Killiveddy village along Muttur-Batticaloa road in government controlled area in the Muttur division Friday to seek safer places to escape from aerial strike and artillery fire now being conducted by the Sri Lankan armed forces. The civilians have fled from their villages, Manalsenai, Mallikaitivu, Menkamam, Bharathipuram, Thanganagar, Kanguveli, Palathadichchenai, and Iruthayapuram, civil sources said.

The civilians have been staying in school buildings, temples and public buildings expecting transport facility to safer places with the facilitation of the International Committee of Red cross (ICRC).

ICRC sources said that their officials were unable to reach Killiveddy to provide any assistance due to blockades in some places along the Kantalai-Allai road on Friday
