The assignment of bringing Jaffna IDPs in Vavuniyaa to Jaffna has been completed with the arrival of 3,588 persons of 1,114 families Saturday night in Jaffna, according to Jaffna Government Agent (GA) K. Ganesh. Meanwhile, a group of media persons from the South led by Jegan Perera, the Director of Peace Congress, has been allowed by the government to come to Jaffna independently after the closure of A9 land route by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in 2006, sources in Jaffna said.

Altogether 58,296 IDPs of 18,628 families have been brought to Jaffna since 5 August, the GA said.

The IDPs brought to Jaffna Saturday have been lodged in interim camps and with their relatives. Some of them have settled in their own homes, the GA further said.

The 21 media persons from South brought to Jaffna by Peace Congress will be engaged in learning about the resettlement of IDPs in Jaffna peninsula as well as the current situation.
