Jaffna Teaching Hospital (JTH) doctors went on an hour's token strike Friday at 8:00 a.m, along with the one-day island wide strike launched by the Doctors in all Sri Lanka government hospitals, condemning the killing of the 38-year-old lady doctor, Ms. Laxmi Idumil in Hambantota in the south, by a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier on 29 September, sources in Jaffna said.

The JTH doctors held a meeting of condolence during their token strike Friday expressing their deep regret on the doctor's death, the sources added.

The out patients to JTH during the token strike were, however, treated without any delay.
