Jaffna paper office encircled by thugs

[TamilNet, Friday, 26 November 2010, 22:12 GMT]
A group of 10 to 15 men wearing black masks have encircled the Jaffna office of Thinakkural located at Kasthooriyaar Road Friday midnight. The newspaper officers who contacted their Colombo office have told the management to take immediate steps to ensure their safety as the presence of the gang posed a direct threat to the media workers at the office and attached press of the Jaffna edition of Thinakkural daily.

The men in black clothes covering their faces are seen with batons and knifes.

Two helmeted armed men arriving on motor cycles Thursday night to the offices of two Tamil dailies published in Jaffna issued letters threatening them not to publish any news about Heroes’ Day that falls on Saturday.
