Sea Tiger vessels carryout sea transport

[TamilNet, Sunday, 30 April 2006, 19:36 GMT]
A number of boats of Sea Tigers on Sunday were confronted by Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) boats while they were transporting cadres from Mullaithivu Sea-Tiger base to Trincomalee in the East. The Sea Tigers counter-attacked and completed their sea passage successfully. On the return journey, SLN vessels followed Sea-Tigers at a distance and the Sea Tigers completed the journey without any interference from the SLN, LTTE sources from Kilinochchi said.

Details on number of boats, or number of cadres and officers transported, are also not known.
