SLA restricts LTTE movement in Vadamarachchi

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 February 2003, 18:48 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Friday ordered the members of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) who go to villages Amban, Kudathanai and Manalkadu in the Vadamarachchi east division to leave the area by four in the evening daily, civilians sources said.

The army imposed this condition after a recent incident where members of the vigilant committee nabbed two SLA soldiers hiding behind a house in Kudathanai, sources said.

LTTE cadres who wanted to stay in these villages should inform their names of the chief occupants of the houses and other details to the nearby army camps, SLA has further instructed, sources said.

Meanwhile, army personnel have started collecting details of the houses and names of household members where LTTE cadres stay overnight, villagers said.
