Civilians killed by SLA gunfire after bomb blast

[TamilNet, Monday, 09 February 2009, 19:48 GMT]
Reports from Vanni indicate that the civilian casualties at the military checkpost claimed as 'IDP rescue centre' by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) was in fact due to gunfire at the civilians by the SLA after a bomb blast, according to civilians who escaped the scene back to LTTE territory.

A perusal of the video clippings released by the SLA would show that the civilian casualties are not due to bomb blast, analysts said.

The SLA didn't release any pictures of its own casualties amidst civilians.

Claims are unable to be verified in the absence of independent monitors or credible sources.
