A Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Deep Penetration Unit triggered a Claymore mine at Thikkuvil in Poonakari (Pooneryn) Wednesday around 1:00 p.m., killing a civilian and wounding two, initial reports from the Poonakari said.
The wounded were rushed to the primary health care centre in Poonakari.
The health care centre is run by the Centre for Health Care (CHC), a local NGO, which re-established the centre in Poonakari as many IDPs who had left Poonakari due to the ongoing Sri Lankan offensive, returned to resume agriculture in their paddy fields following the moonsoonal rain.
