[TamilNet, Saturday, 22 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
Two Sri Lankan army soldiers were killed on the spot when the jeep they were traveling in ran over a powerful pressure mine this morning at Paranthan, in the north of the Vanni region.

Army sources said that the pressure mine was so powerful that the jeep was completely destroyed. They said that it might have been intended for larger vehicles.

The SLA has a large base at Paranthan, located between the Kilinochchi and Elephant pass military complexes.

Army sources claimed that LTTE infiltrators had laid the mine.
