SLN slaps travel ban to Jaffna islets

[TamilNet, Monday, 11 June 2007, 10:41 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) imposed a total ban from Monday early morning on travel to the Jaffna islets through Pa'n'nai bridge, and barred people from either entering or leaving the Islets, sources in Jaffna said. The travel restriction may have been prompted by a clash said to have been erupted between the SLN and unidentified armed men Sunday night at Pu'liyangkoodal junction in Kayts. The Islets are under control of the SLN.

Meanwhile, Kayts police produced the body of an unidentified youth with gun shot wounds before Kayts magistrate Monday around 11:00 a.m., legal sources in Jaffna said.

The Magistrate directed the police to have the victim identified.

The police claimed that they recovered the body at Pu'liyangkoodal junction in Kayts.

As no one was permitted to leave the islets, accurate information about the clash or eventual casualties is not available.

The clash between the SLN and the unidentified armed men is said to have lasted for nearly ten minutes.
