Unknown assailants hurled hand grenades at the cadres of the paramilitary Eelam Peoples Democratic Party (EPDP) selling "Thinamurasu", a weekly paper printed by EPDP, at Kanagaretnam road junction in Valaichchenai Police division in Batticaloa district, around 10:30 a.m. Friday, sources said. No one was injured in the attack.
