Explosions around telephone exchanges

[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 June 1998, 23:59 GMT]
A bomb was found at the Kaluvanchikkudy telecommunication exchange at around 7.30 a.m. this morning and was later diffused by the Special Task Force (STF) of the Sri Lankan Police, said sources. This building was damaged last Saturday in a bomb explosion.

In a separate incident a transformer was destroyed at Yakala in the Gampaha district of the Western Province at around 4 a.m. this morning, said Police sources.

Another transformer was destroyed in Ragama Southeast of Colombo yesterday, the sources added.

There have been a series of similar explosions during the recent months.

Meanwhile a high level development committee meeting that was scheduled to take place in Trincomalee today at 10.00 a.m has had to be called off for security reasons, said sources there. The committee meets on a monthly basis to monitor the general situation in the Trincomalee district.

The committee was to discuss matters related to the general security situation, development work, civil administration and resettlement of displaced people in the Trincomalee district.

Maj. Gen. Nihal Jeyakody, Commanding Officer of the 22-division of the Sri Lankan Army, Veli Oya region, Brig. Lawrence Fernando, Co-ordinating Officer for the Trincomalee District, four parliamentarians of the districts, the Government Agent (GA) and other senior government officials usually take part in these meetings.
