SLA extends curfew hours in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 11 February 2007, 00:01 GMT]
Palaly military command announced Friday over radio broadcast from Palaly base that curfew hours in Jaffna peninsula have been extended by an hour to ten hours effective Friday. The new curfew hours begin at 6:00 pm and will last till 4:00 am the following day early morning.

The new curfews hours will be strictly enforced in Vadamaradchy, Thenmaradchy, Valigamam and in the islands in the peninsula, the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) said in the broadcast.

The extension of the curfew hours is believed to have been the direct result of the claymore attack at Urelu on Thursday. Although many SLA troopers are believed killed in the ambush, Colombo has not acknowledged the attack.
