Three policemen and three civilians including an eight year old girl were injured Friday around 1.20 p.m at Station Road Vairavapulliyankulam in Vavuniya in a Claymore attack targeting the vehicle taking lunch to the police cadres, said Vavuniya police.

Out of the six injured, five were rushed to Anuradapura hospital from Vavuniya general hospital.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) troopers and policemen opened fire for 15 minutes after the explosion, according to civilian sources.

The Claymore device was attached to a Margosa tree near a Police check post.

In the absence of a medical surgeon in the Vavuniya general hospital many patients are being transferred to Anuradapura hospital.

Mr. Sivanathan Kishore, the Vavuniya Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian has already brought the matter to the Minister of Health, said medical sources in Vavuniya.
