Hospital vehicle, passenger bus escape DPU attacks in Vanni

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 February 2007, 05:03 GMT]
A van belonging to Nedunkerni hospital narrowly escaped from a Claymore explosion, triggered by Sri Lanka Army deep penetration unit ambushmen at Manavalanpaddamurippu village, 32 km southwest of Mullaithivu town around 7:15 a.m. Tuesday. An hour later, a civilian vehicle on Nedunkeni Periyakulam route narrowly escaped from another Claymore mine, according to Tamileelam Police officials.

Manavalanpaddamurippu is located in Oddusuddan DS division.

Nine persons including the driver were in the The Hiace van, travelling from Nedunkerny to Puthukudirippu.

The Claymore attack was triggered at the same place at Nedunkerny where in August 2006, five persons including the doctor were killed in a similar attack on the Nedunkerny hospital ambulance by the SLA deep penetration unit.

Residents of Pulliyankulam and Nedunkerny areas in Vavuniya district are moving in fear out of their villages.
