Monitors of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission in Trincomalee district Friday morning returned to their office, which is located along the Inner Harbor Road in the east port town. The office was closed on the orders of the SLMM headquarters since Tuesday evening following a cycle- bomb attack on a convoy of the Sri Lanka Navy injuring about eleven sailors and government troops killed two Tamil civilians and injuring six others in retaliation.

Mr. Arthur Tveiten, Trincomalee head of the SLMM said "although we re-opened our office Friday, we visited the scene of claymore mine attack on a navy vehicle that took place on Thursday between Gandhinagar and Anuradhapura junction in Trincomalee Thursday evening. From tomorrow onwards we will officially resume our monitoring work in the district."
