SLA turns away 26 lorries with humanitarian supplies at Omanthai

[TamilNet, Saturday, 25 October 2008, 13:06 GMT]
Though the officials in Colombo claimed that 54 lorries were sent to the Wanni on Friday, only 28 WFP supply lorries entered the LTTE controlled Vanni. Other lorries were turned away at Oamanthai. These include two lorry loads of medical supplies and eight carrying kerosene.

29 World Food Programme (WFP) lorries and 25 lorries of the Government Agents (GAs) were scheduled to enter the LTTE controlled Vanni on Friday.

Meanwhile, officials in Vanni said more than 200,000 displaced people who are living under trees, urgently need shelter. For the first time since 2005, five malaria patients were admitted to Mullaiththeevu hospital. Hospital sources said they are short of medicine and oxygen cylinders, expressing fear of Malaria outbreak with the monsoonal rains.
