PLOTE shuts down Vavuniyaa

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 06 February 2008, 08:23 GMT]
Vavuniyaa came to a standstill Wednesday when all public and private institutions were instructed by paramilitary operatives of PLOTE to protest against escalating Claymore attacks and blasts. There was no traffic or people on the roads except a few on push bikes and motor bicycles. Armed men who were on the look out for persons defying the shut down warned persons who were on the roads.

Even tea stalls remained closed in Vavuniyaa rendering it into a ghost town.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers and police were deployed in large numbers Wednesday.
