[TamilNet, Wednesday, 04 April 2007, 02:01 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) arrested more than 35 Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) who had gone to 38th Colony, Palayadivettai and Nellikaddu villages, located on the border between Amparai and Batticaloa districts, to inspect their houses which they had fled from, said refugees who escaped from SLA. The detained were taken to Kondaivettuvaan SLA camp in Amparai district, same sources said.

Further details of the fate of those arrested are not known.

SLA troopers have been accused of looting the properties in the villages of the IDPs in the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) held territories and transporting them openly in tractors and lorries to their camps.

Properties in Vaharai too were looted in the same manner, the IDPs said.

Kondaivettuvaan SLA camp is located close to its check post at Kondaivettuvaan where a bomb in a bus exploded killing 16 and wounding 27 civilians Monday.
