Trinco Tamils seek refuge in public, religious institutions

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 April 2006, 18:13 GMT]
Several Tamil families Wednesday night sought refuge in public buildings and religious institutions following violence in Trincomalee town and its outskirts, civil sources said. Burnt down shops and other business establishments along the Central Road and North Coast Road are still smoldering, sources added. The Trincomalee town had been under complete dark Wednesday night as the workers of the Urban Council failed to switch on the street lights due to fear after evening violence, sources said.

In Anpuvallipuram junction, about 2 km off Trincomalee town unidentified persons lobbed a grenade at a Tamil shop, and later unidentified group of persons burnt down two shops belonging to Tamils, civil sources said.

Unidentified groups waylaid some government servants and Tamil civilians returning from work to their residences at Mud Cove, a suburb in Trincomalee town and set fire to their motorbikes and push bicycles, civil sources said.
