No change in curfew in Jaffna - SLA

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 June 2008, 14:45 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) announced Wednesday night over its radio in Palaali that the curfew hours will be extended, the new hours being 7:00 p.m to 5:00 a.m daily with effect from Thursday night. But, later on Thursday the SLA announced that the curfew will be between 9:00 p.m. to 4:30 a.m., as usual. Artillery fire exchanges that took place between the SLA at Palaali and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) from their territories Wednesday evening may have caused the initial announcement, residents said.

Shells launched by the LTTE on Palaali SLA military complex Wednesday evening fell and exploded around the complex, informed sources said.
