LTTE office escapes damage as grenade fails to explode

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 May 2003, 13:14 GMT]
A grenade was thrown at the main entrance to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) administrative office in Thamaraikerni in Batticaloa district at 2.10pm Saturday. The 15 year old, J.R type grenade, generally used by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA), failed to explode and no one was injured, security sources said.

The LTTE office administrator, Veeravarman, said that he and another LTTE cadre were at the office when the grenade was thrown.

He added that the likely assailants are two persons, one belonging to Peoples Liberation of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE) and the other from the Intelligence wing of the SLA, who were seen loitering near the LTTE office from early morning Saturday.

Veeravarman further said that they have registered a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) regarding the incident.
