Batticaloa district ICRC handed over to M. Mathy, Karadiyanaru LTTE head of political wing, Friday around 11:00 a.m, bodies of six Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) cadres killed in an ambush by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and its paramilitary troopers Wednesday at Miyankulam. The LTTE cadres, injured in an earlier battle, were being taken for treatment across the Colombo-Batticaloa road at Miyankulam, when they were ambushed, Batticaloa sources said. Miyankulam lies on the border between LTTE held area in Vaharai and SLA held areas.

Three of the dead were identified as Ethirmannasingham Kannathasan, alias Sujithan, 18, of Kardiayanaru, Batticaloa, Abraham Ronard Antony, alias Thamil Mannan, 18, of Thanthamalai, Kokatticholai, Batticaloa and Tharman Jegan, alias Vipunakaran, 19, of Uthayanmoolai, Sithandy, Batticaloa.

Details of the other three are not available.

The remains five LTTE cadres were interred at Tharavai Heroes Resting Home and one at Thandiyady Heroes Resting Home with full military honours.

LTTE commanders, combatants and local residents took part in the burial ceremonies held at both places.
