Tiger posters put up in security zone

[TamilNet, Saturday, 24 March 2001, 20:11 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers put up posters to mark the annual month long commemoration of 'Annai' Poopathi which began this week, in the heart of the Sri Lanka Army's high security zone in Batticaloa town, Saturday morning. 'Annai' Poopathi fasted to death at a temple in Batticaloa in 1988 demanding the withdrawal of the Indian Army.

The printed posters were pasted on the walls of the Batticaloa market and the streets in its vicinity.

By noon the police had removed the posters and increased security in the area.

Police said they are investigating into how the Tigers were able to bring the posters into the high security zone and paste them in broad daylight.

The Batticaloa market shares a common boundary with the Police headquarters complex of the district.
