One skeleton was discovered from the same waste-pit in Urithirapuram, Kilinochchi where three skeletons were unearthed yesterday, said the Voice of Tigers (VoT) in its afternoon broadcast.
The skeleton found today contained remnants of a reinforcing surgery done to one broken leg bone. The three skeletons found yesterday had some clothing around them.
The waste-pit was situated about 700 m north of the Forward Defence Lines (FDL) of the security forces when Kilinochchi was occupied by Government troops, the radio said.
The skeletons have been taken to the Kilinochchi District Hospital for medical examination. They will be later taken to Akkarayan for possible identification, the radio said.
After the latest Tiger offensive, Unceasing Waves III, 42 skeletons have been discovered in Kilinochchi district including the 13 found on the 6th, 8th, 11th and the 20th of this month, VoT said.
