SLA blocks kites on Vadamaraadchi skies

[TamilNet, Thursday, 15 January 2009, 02:07 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers in several villages of Vadamaraadchi have been confiscating kites flown by recreation enthusiasts in recent days.

The Sri Lankan soldiers did not provide any reason for blocking the kites, but said they were simply following the orders from the top. The SLA was confiscating kites fearing that these could be deployed to take aerial photographs of their installations, the sport enthusiasts in Vadamaraadchi said.

The SLA had not blocked the sport in the past years.

Hundreds of people in Vadamaraadchi in Jaffna use to fly kites during this period.
