Kilinochchi landmines wound civilians

[TamilNet, Thursday, 08 October 1998, 22:03 GMT]
A youth identified as T.Roopan lost one of his legs yesterday when a land mine exploded in Kilinochchi. Sources said the youth had gone to see the area that the Tigers had recently captured from the Sri Lankan Army.

The Tigers have warned civilians not to visit some parts of Kilinochchi that have not been cleared for mines and booby traps.

Three civilians have lost their legs in land mine explosions since the town was captured by the Tigers on September 29.

They are being treated at the Akaraayankulam hospital.

Meanwhile the District Medical Officer has appealed for help to identify a youth, who is being treated at Kilinochchi government hospital. He is said to be in an unconscious state.

The youth was wounded when the Sri Lankan Army fired shells towards Murikandi, north of Mankulam, on October 4, said hospital sources.

They said a note was found in his shirt pocket saying S. Thiyagaraja, Sivan Koivilady (temple), Ottusuddan.
