There was a grenade blast near the EPDP office which is situated close to the Sreethar theater in Jaffna.

One of the bunkers defending the EPDP office collapsed as the result of the explosion which occured at 10.30 this morning.

It was not clear whether the LTTE had carried out a grenade attack on the EPDP bunker, or if the structure had collapsed due to heavy rain, thereby triggering the grenade explosion, said sources in Jaffna.

One EPDP member guarding the bunker was injured and has been admitted to the Jaffna Teaching Hospital.
