Sri Lanka Army (SLA) arrested three civilians, including an employee at the Mallaakam Co-operative society, following the claymore attack Friday on the SLA near Maasiyapiddi junction, 11 km northwest of Jaffna city, where several SLA soldiers were reported seriously injured or dead, sources in Jaffna said.

The said worker was irrigating his field near Maasiyappiddi junction during the time of the blast. After he returned to work at the Co-operative branch located along the KKS Road, he was called home by his parents on the direction of the SLA and was arrested at his home, sources said.

Chunnaaakam Kantharoadai Road residents said they witnessed two more locals being arrested, bringing the number arrested to three.

Legal sources in Jaffna said none of the arrested has yet been produced in Jaffna Courts.
