[TamilNet, Saturday, 24 November 2007, 12:24 GMT]
The 32-year old woman, seriously injured during bombing by Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) Kfir fighter jets targeting a civilian settlement in Mu'rika'ndi located close to Ki'linochchi on 16 November morning, succumbed to her injuries Thursday evening, sources in Kilinochchi said. Doctors could not save her seriously injured legs, and the legs were amputated earlier.

The victim, S. Roobi, mother of three was being treated in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Ki'linochchi Government Hospital.

The bombing also injured another civilian, and completely destroyed a private boat building yard which makes boats for tsunami affected fishermen. Roobi was in her hut located next to the boat building yard when the bombers struck.

Five huts of tsunami victims and the house of Mu'rika'ndi Hindu Viththiyaalayam principal were damaged in the bombing.
