Unidentified armed men who came in a motorbike shot dead two Tamil civilians when they were riding in a motorbike Wednesday morning around 7:30 a.m., to report for work in a cement factory located in the Chinabay police division. The killings took place when the victims had been riding along the rail track in Palaiyootu village, Police said.

The victims have been identified as Saimonthambi Sahayarajah, 47 and Ponnuthurai Ramathas 24.

Both had been residents of Palaiyootu.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has banned Wednesday morning all vehicles entering Trincomalee town.

SLA said that this ban was a security rehearsal and that people, however, can walk into the town to attend their affairs.
