Lanka Muditha to sail tomorrow

[TamilNet, Thursday, 12 November 1998, 18:35 GMT]
The Lanka Muditha, the merchant cargo ship chartered by the Sri Lankan government to ferry civilians and troops from Jaffna will set sail with 1076 passengers tomorrow from the Kankesanturai (KKS) harbour to Trincomalee at 12 noon said officials this evening.

An official at the Jaffna Kachcheri said that it was not clear whether troops will also be sent with the civilians this time.

Tamil political parties and western NGOs have raised strong objections to the SLA sending its troops along with civilians.

They say that it could seriously compromise the lives of the civilians.

The Sea Tiger wing of the Liberation Tigers have attacked the SL Navy's supply convoy's to Jaffna twice this year.
