Curfew in Thenmaradchi continues

[TamilNet, Sunday, 31 December 2006, 04:11 GMT]
The indefinite extension of Sri Lanka Army (SLA) curfew on Thenmaradchi from Thursday 9:00 p.m continued for more than 24 hours, causing untold difficulties to the residents of the area, confining them indoors, sources from Chavakacheri said. There had been no clashes or extraordinary circumstances calling for search operation in the area where the curfew is being imposed by the SLA, the sources added.

People travelling to Chavakacheri and Kodikamam from the Jaffna peninsula were stopped at Kaithady Nunavil junction and sent back.

The roads to Kachchai, Poonery, Kerathivu and Sangupitty in the Chavakacheri Municipality area have been closed by the SLA giving room for suspicion that the SLA is about to launch an offensive on Poonery and Sangupitty areas held by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), residents of Chavakacheri said.
