[TamilNet, Friday, 05 October 2001, 12:17 GMT]
Two Sri Lanka Navy ratings were killed and one injured in a mortar attack by the Liberation Tigers on Kalmuttiyaankulam, 16 kilometres west of Trincomalee, Friday morning around 10 a.m. Kalmuttyaankulam is a reservoir under the control of the SLN. It is the main water supply to the SLN's eastern command in Trincomalee.

The SLN has a small detachment at Kalmuttiyaankulam to guard the water supply reservoir.

The detachment is in the interior, two kilometres off the Trincomalee-Kandy highway in Palampattaaru.

Kalmuttiyaankulam was the main water supply reservoir to the Trincomalee town earlier. The town is now supplied from the Kantalai tank (reservoir).
