[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 October 1998, 20:15 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers sent video footage of their attack on Kilinochchi to selected foreign correspondents and leading Sri Lankan journalists, including the Colombo BBC correspondent and Sunday Times defence columnist Iqbal Athas today.
The Video cassette is called, according to sources, 'Operation Unceasing Waves II: The Kilinochchi Debacle'.
A foreign correspondent who saw the Video film said that it was in English and Sinhala.
The Video shows Prabhaharan and the LTTE's military commander Balraj instructing LTTE troops about the attack plans and the hand over of the bodies of the SLA soldiers killed when the Liberation Tigers overran the Kilinochchi base among other things.
The large area, including Paranthan junction and the northern part of the Kilinochchi town captured by the Liberation Tigers in Operation Unceasing Waves II and the removal of vehicles and ammunition from the overrun base are also shown in the video footage said sources who saw the cassette today.
