Four Policemen injured

[TamilNet, Friday, 12 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
A bus carrying a Police contingent from Omanthai was hit by a claymore mine near Thandikkulam farm school premises this morning around 6.45 a.m. Four Policemen were injured in the explosion.

Police sources said that casualties are low because there had been a herd of cattle on the road slowing the bus ahead of the claymore mine.

This saved the bus taking the full blast of the claymore, they said.
