[TamilNet, Thursday, 13 April 2006, 05:29 GMT]
Two Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) cadres were killed Thursday around 8:45 a.m. when paramilitary cadres launched an ambush with the support of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers inside the LTTE controlled Vakaneri, 40 km north of Batticaloa, LTTE officials in Batticaloa said. One of the cadres killed in the ambush was identified as Ithayaventhan.

LTTE sources said the paramilitary cadres were assisted by SLA soldiers who fired mortar shells when the Tigers launched a counter-attack on the retreating group of paramilitary men.

Sri Lanka Army sources, denying their involvement, claimed that two Tiger cadres were killed, and four LTTE cadres were wounded in the attack. The SLA source further claimed that a T-56 rifle was recovered by the "Karuna Group."

The ambush took place at the fourth junction in Vakaneri.
