Search operation came to a halt in these areas following reports that anti-personnel mines were found floating in the water after Tsunami hit the coastal belt last Sunday. Officials of DDG denied that reports and said that the area in question had been cleared of mines.

Volunteers of DDG Saturday conducted search operation in Munai and Katkovalam areas and recovered two bodies of missing persons. Now members of fisheries society of the area Saturday decided to resume the search operation for missing persons, sources said.

In another interesting development, in some instances in Maruthankerni village in Vadamaradchchi east division domestic dogs had successfully led search teams to recover bodies of their masters trapped under the rubbles of collapsed buildings, debris and buried in sand hill, said Mr.T.Thuraiveerasingham.
