2 ambulances with 11 patients turned back at Omanthai

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 11 April 2007, 07:40 GMT]
Two ambulances from Kilinochchi district hospital, in need of urgent medical transportation to Vavuniya hospital, were forced on Tuesday to return to Kilinochchi as the ambulances were not allowed to proceed beyond Omanthai SLA checkpost due to the closure of the entry point by the Sri Lanka Army. Exchange of artillery fire following Sri Lankan troops attempt to move into LTTE territory had caused the closure of Omanthai gateway.

The ambulances were carrying 11 patients in need of urgent medical treatment, unavailable at Kilinochchi hospital, according to medical sources.

People travelling to and fro from Vanni and lorries transporting food and other essential commodities were also not allowed to pass through Omanthai check point.

The two ambulances not allowed to proceed to their destination had the following patients from Kilinochchi hospital:

Vinijia Sarojini, 41, Rajendran Kantharuby, 34, Vinayagamoorthy Vasanthy, 46, Kunaratnam Rajeswary, 58, were the patients taken in one ambulance.

Maheswary's baby, Thinninayakam Annalaxmy, 76, Mohanaraj Kavithas, 06, Selvananthan Sinthuja, 21, Nagalingam Sarojini, 35 and Paramalingam Sinthija, 10, were the patients in the next ambulance.
