The Liberation Tigers ambushed a group of Special Forces Commandos travelling in a tractor at Nayinamadu killing five and wounding several others last evening around 5.30 p.m.
The LTTE exploded a claymore mine in the ambush. The commandos belonged to the 53 division.
Sources close to the army in Vavuniya said that the Jayasikurui commanders were very alarmed that the LTTE has been able to launch this daring attack in the heart of an area dominated by the army.
