[TamilNet, Thursday, 30 November 2006, 11:44 GMT]
The Head of Vavuniya Institute of Education, K. Bernad, said that 115 Sinhalese students of the institution complained to him Wednesday around 9:00 p.m that unidentified armed men had come to the institution asking for them. As the students said they feared for their lives, arrangements were made with the Vavuniya Sri Lanka Army (SLA) to give protection to the students Wednesday night, K. Bernad added.

All students returned to their respective home towns Thursday escorted by the SLA.

K. Bernad said that he will be investigating into the threats posed to his students.
