Members of SLA Deep Penetration Units (DPU) and troops deployed in attempts to break into LTTE FDLs are the ones who were caught in Tiger booby traps according to the LTTE.

13 SLA soldiers in Mu値値ikku値am, 8 in Pa'ndivirichchaan, 9 in Koayilku値am and 5 in Valaiyankaddu have either been killed or injured in eight days.
