1300 Jaffna civilians to be transported by cargo ship

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 February 2007, 21:38 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) announced Wednesday that a group of civilians wishing to travel out of Jaffna peninsula will be first taken to Kankesanturai Harbour prior to being taken to Trincomalee. Consequence to the announcement from Palaly Military base, SLA troops arrived on Wednesday at Jaffna Sinhala Maha Vidayalayam and selected 1300 passengers to be allowed to travel from KKS harbour by a cargo ship.

Jaffna Government Agent (GA) K. Ganesh had earlier Tuesday informed that registering the names of those wishing to travel by ship from Kankesanthurai to Trincomalee at the District Secretariat has been temporarily suspended.

The new announcement is likely to bring much relief to those who have been fortunate enough to be selected.
