The LTTE women cadres shouted at the soldiers to stop running and to raise their hands.

Two soldiers managed to disappear inside the no-man's land, according to sources. The women cadres opened fire when the the third soldier stopped and tried to throw a hand-grenade towards the LTTE women cadres.
