SLA attacks kill Mullai DS officials engaged in humanitarian work

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 March 2009, 19:37 GMT]
Two of the 131 civilians slain on Wednesday were District Secretariat officials engaged in humanitarian work, according to initial details from the civil sources in Vanni. A 52-year-old female, Mariyanayagam Deisyrany, attached to the registrar section of the Mullaiththeevu District Secretariat and a 27-year-old female, Janoja, engaged in the supply of World Food Program (WFP) delivered humanitarian aid.

The entire 'safety zone' has been divided into 24 divisions for the supply of humanitarian aid. It has been a demanding task for the officials engaged in the work as every family has to be registered and allocated a registration number for a systematic supply of humanitarian relief.

Both the officials and the civilians who stand in long queues have come under SLA attack within the safety zone.
