STF shells Tsunami transit centres in Thandiyady, Amparai

[TamilNet, Thursday, 28 September 2006, 12:48 GMT]
Special Task Force (STF) personnel, based at the Thandiyady STF camp, Thursday morning around 7:00 a.m., fired mortar shells and directed gunfire on the Thandiyady Tsunami transit camps in the region, seriously injuring a woman and destroying property. Panic stricken Tsunami victims fled their camps as shells fell and exploded all around them. A section of the Thandiyady Vigneswara Vidyalayam too was badly damaged by the shelling.

A seriously injured woman, V. Ampujam, 46, was rushed to the Thirukovil hospital for emergency treatment.

The Tsunami victims fled in fear from their settlements, scared by the shells exploding around them.

Meanwhile, three youths Thavam, Kunam and Manickam, who had gone to load clay bricks near the Thandiyady STF camp, were brutally assaulted by the STF men and have been admitted to the hospital with serious injuries.

Thadiyady Tsunami victims settlement is located 15 km south of Akkaraipattu in the Amparai district.
