[TamilNet, Tuesday, 16 December 2008, 14:20 GMT]
Residents of Mirusuvil and Usan areas in Thenmaraadchi fled from their houses when shells fired by Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) targeting the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) bases in the said areas fell and exploded, Tuesday around 5:00 a.m, according to civil sources in the area. The shelling began following the Tuesday clashes between the SLA and the LTTE.

The shells fell and exploded in Mirusuvil, Usan and near St. Nicholas church in Usan causing the few families in the area to flee.

Most of the residents had already left their homes since clashes between SLA and LTTE intensified in recent times, the sources said.

The actual number of families or persons who fled Tuesday from shelling is not available to them, the officials said.
