[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 August 2009, 04:52 GMT]
Police claimed to have recovered two claymore mines in Angulana, Moratuwa Friday morning. The mines were located hidden in a bare land. The bomb disposal squad rushed to the site and defused the two mines. However, civil sources in Angulana said the alleged detection of two claymore mines in Angulana had been a ruse to divert the attention of the people of Angulana who are furious over the killing of two Sinhala youths by the police personnel manning the Angulana police station at that time.
Investigations into the discovery are underway, according to police sources.
The bombs weighing 24 and 11 kilos each were believed to have been meant to be fixed on a three wheeler to target a crowded area, police said.
