[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 November 2008, 10:45 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE) on Tuesday released photos from the pitched battle reported on Sunday between Uruththirapuram and Kugnchup-paranthan. The Tigers had claimed at least 43 SLA soldiers were killed, 70 wounded and that they had recovered 8 dead bodies of the SLA soldiers. LTTE officials, who provided photos to media also revealed the identity of a Sri Lankan soldier as 20-year-old Inthika Ruwankumara from Polgahamulla, Angkada, Gamewela.

The photos display the victimisation of young generation Sinhalese into the war by the Sri Lankan state, commented the Tiger officials, who were observing Heroes Remembrance Days this week.
