Skeletons found in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 26 March 1999, 08:54 GMT]
Jaffna municipal workers digging a cesspit near the Duraippa stadium came upon a number of human skeletons today. The Jaffna Municipal Council stopped the work today following the discovery. According to initial reports, there are several rows of human skeletons in the place where the cesspit was dug.

Municipal workers had found many bone fragments just beneath the surface when they had started work last week.

They had ignored the fragments, assuming that they were from the carcasses of animals slaughtered in the area during peace time in Jaffna more than a decade ago.

However, yesterday they had come upon a human skull. And later the municipal diggers had found what appears to be a row of skeletons piled up and buried.

Sources in Jaffna said that bodies could have been buried when this spot was a no go area for civilians.
