Kaaththaankudi returns to normalcy

[TamilNet, Sunday, 25 May 2008, 00:25 GMT]
The turbulent town of Kaaththaankudi in Batticaloa district is slowly returning to normalcy since the violent clashes and killings on Thursday and the business establishments and the markets in the area have once again started functioning, sources said.

However, all activities in the predominantly Tamil town of Aaraiyampathi are at standstill since the armed operatives of Pillayan led paramilitary group Thamil Makkal Viduthali Puligal (TMVP) have issued orders to the owners not to open their stores until further notice, a spokesman for the traders told TamilNet.

Meanwhile, though the business stores in Batticaloa town opened Saturday morning they were shut down by 11:00 a.m.

The local transportation in Baticaloa district is being continued on a limited scale.
