[TamilNet, Friday, 21 March 2008, 11:43 GMT]
Two Tamil youths, both residents of Sinnakadai in Mannaar town, were arrested Wednesday night by Anuradhapura police when they were traveling in a vehicle bound for Mannaar. The youths are being detained at Anuradhapura police station and are being subjected to interrogation by the Terrorist Intelligence Division (TID) on a report that they attempted to smuggle explosives and gelignite sticks via Madawaachchi jungles to Mannaar, media sources said.

Police personnel manning the Madawaachchi check point stopped the vehicle and found explosives and gelignite sticks with the aid of sniffer dogs.

The explosives were concealed in the back seat, and the Police said they recovered some wires and prohibited items in the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle and his companion were taken in for questioning and later detained for further inquiry as the preliminary investigation revealed that both had been having contacts with the LTTE, media sources said.
