[TamilNet, Friday, 16 January 1998, 23:59 GMT]
An unidentified Tamil group attempting to paste election posters at Kalvayal on the Perunkulam Road in the Chavakachcheri area in Jaffna, was chased away by armed persons suspected to be members of the Liberation Tigers this afternoon around 4.00 p.m.
Residents said that a grenade had been exploded at a distance to scare the poster pasters.
The residents were, however, unable to identify them as they had taken to their heels - with their posters
The Tamil groups contesting the Jaffna elections say that the LTTE has on many occasions turned them away from certain areas politely.
