A group of one hundred IDPs held in Vavuniyaa internment camp were brought on Thursday to Eachchilampathu Sri Shempaga Maha Vidiyalayam transit camp.

The IDPs, all former residents of villages in Moothoor east and released from Vavuniyaa camps, were housed temporarily in Sri Shenpaga Maha Vidiyalayam to be resettled in their villages after screening by security forces to find out whether they were involved in terrorist activity.
