The other two were those of two Tigers who had been killed in confrontations with the SLA at Mankulam yesterday.

The three bodies were taken in a Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRC) vehicle to the Vanni. Meanwhile the Tigers said in the Vanni today that three of their troops were killed in two confrontations at Mankulam on February 3.
