Twenty-five Tamil civilians were arrested in a cordon and search operation by Sri Lanka security forces Wednesday early morning at Uddapu, a traditional Tamil village in Chilaw division in the northwestern province. One of the arrested is a native of Jaffna and another a native of Trincomalee town. Six civilians were natives of Thampalakamam, a Tamil village in Trincomalee district and eighteen are residents of Uddapu, sources said.

All were taken into custody as they failed to prove their identity and provide satisfactory reason for the stay in location. They are being detained in the Chilaw police station and interrogated, sources said.
