Three LTTE women officials were injured when unidentiefied attackers lobbed a grenade through the backdoor of the LTTE Women's political office located in Vairavapuliyankulam, 1.5 km west of Vavuniya town Saturday night at 10:55 p.m., Police said. This is the fourth time that an LTTE office in Sri Lanka Army controlled Vavuniya town has been subjected to attack, sources close to LTTE in Vavuniya said.

The women's political office is located close to the LTTE's District Political office, which was attacked twice earlier. The administrative office of the LTTE located in Thirunavatkulam was also attacked once, sources said.

Wounded cadres were rushed to Vavuniya Hospital for treatment. Later, on Sunday, the injured cadres were transferred to Vanni, LTTE sources said.

A paramilitary camp of the EPDP is located 500 meters from the location.

Vavuniya Police is conducting investigations into the attack.

LTTE officials said that they have lodged a complaint with the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission office in Vavuniya.
