SLAF bombers attack civilian settlements in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 December 2007, 15:52 GMT]
Two civilians were wounded Wednesday noon when Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers attacked civilian settlements in Mulllaiththeevu district, at A'lampil and Chemmalai. A 19-year-old youth and a 33-year-old man were wounded in the attacks. Students attending GCE Ordinary Level exams were disturbed by the air attacks as they were forced to leave the examination hall and seek shelter inside bunkers. There were a number of students who were unable to continue with the exams due to trauma from the air raids, an official at Mullaiththeevu Zonal Education Office told media.

A 33-year-old man, M. Kesavan, the father of two, was injured when the Kfirs dropped bombs close to a settlement of Tsunami refugees at A'lampil.

The 19-year-old youth wounded in the attack was identified as S. Mathavan.

The SLAF bombers attacked A'lampil twice, before attacking Chemmalai.

The first attack was reported at 12:10 p.m.
