SLA searches schools in Jaffna peninsula

[TamilNet, Thursday, 09 October 2008, 12:21 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) conducted cordon and searches Tuesday and Wednesday deploying hundreds of soldiers in several schools in Vadamaraadchi, Thenmaraadchi and Valikaamam, sources in Jaffna said. The school offices, stores and other sections were subjected to search but no objects or weapons were recovered in these searches, the sources added.

SLA cordon and search operations began a week ago, first with Saiva temples following three SLA soldiers being seriously injured in Maasiyappiddi attack, and then Government offices and corporation buildings. SLA has turned the attention to searching schools in the peninsula. Soldiers in their hundreds entered the schools while the children were engaged in educational activities and searched schools in Point Pedro and Thumpa'lai areas. Similar cordon and searches were conducted Tuesday and Wednesday in Thenmaraadchi schools and in some of the schools in Valikaamam.
