[TamilNet, Monday, 30 October 2006, 00:05 GMT]
Two LTTE cadres, allegedly on leave visiting their parents, were shot dead by the Sri Lankan Army (SLA) in two different interior villages in Batticaloa Saturday, Batticaloa District LTTE Deputy Political Head, S.Seeralan, said Sunday. Representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) have made arrangements to transfer the bodies to the LTTE, Seeralan further said.

Jeyasri Kunasekaran, alias Nanthaseelan, of Palachcholai, Kakkachchiveddai was killed in 39th Colony, a boarder village between Amparai and Batticaloa districts.

Sivappirakasm Rajan, alias Ranjanithevan, of Vijayan Stores road, Kalkudah, Valaichchenai was killed at Nasivanthivu.

Earlier, Valaichchenai Police said that SLA had shot dead a youth in Nasivanthivu around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and had recovered a T56 assault rifle.

Also, Amparai Police had claimed that the Special Task Force (STF) camp located in 11th Colony, Bakkiyella in Batticaloa Amparai border came under attack around from 7:00 pm to 7:15 pm Saturday, and that STF had repulsed the attack. In the ensuing search operation STF had recovered two bodies of LTTE cadres and two T-56 rifles, Amparai Police had claimed earlier.

Seeralan said that the SLA soldiers had killed two unarmed LTTE cadres, and had staged their bodies placing weapons nearby to make it appear they were cadres who participated in attacks against the SLA.
