SLA extends curfew in Jaffna by 3 hours

[TamilNet, Sunday, 01 April 2007, 14:07 GMT]
Sri Lanka Military High command based in Palaly military base announced using the official military radio Sunday that the curfew across Jaffna district has been extended by three hours to last from 6:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Previously, the designated curfew hours were from 8:00 p.m to 4:00 a.m.

All areas in Jaffna including Vadamaradchy, Thenmaradchy, Valigamam and Islet regions are to be affected by the new curfew hours.

The SLA command warned Jaffna residents that violators of the curfew will be arrested and punished.

SLA usually extends the curfew hours when it moves heavy equipment and weapons to Forward Defence Lines (FDLs) or when the SLA is making preparation for war.
