[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 November 2008, 17:01 GMT]
Four Tamil civilians were taken into custody in a cordon and search
operation conducted by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police within the municipal
limits of the Badulla Sunday night, sources in Badulla said. Four Tamils were among sixteen persons arrested on that day. Others were released after preliminary inquiry.
Tamil civilians are being detained in the Badulla police station for further
inquiry as they failed to prove their identity and provide satisfactory
reason for their stay in the location, police sources said.
The arrested Tamils are expected to be produced in court Wednesday.
