Total power cut in Batticaloa

[TamilNet, Monday, 12 October 1998, 07:09 GMT]
The electricity supply to the Batticaloa district has been completely cut off since 7 p.m. last night. The main power pylons that supply electricity to the whole district located in Vellaveli, about 40 kilometres south west of Batticaloa, were blasted by the Liberation Tigers said Sri Lankan Police sources in Batticaloa.

The Liberation Tigers have been blasting transformers and pylons as part of their campaign to undermine the SLA's logistics in the Batticaloa district.

They say that the Sri Lankan government supplies electricity to only those parts of the Batticaloa district which are under the control of the SLA.
