SLA supply lorry intercepted

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 December 1997, 23:59 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers captured a lorry taking food supplies to army camps on Batticaloa - Valaichenai road on Monday (December 1) at Sunkaankerny, 20 miles north of Batticaloa town.

Initial reports yesterday had said that the Tigers had removed the vegetables, coconuts and eggs from a civilian lorry, which they had later abandoned.

It has now transpired that the lorry was one of the SLA's regular supply vehicles.

The village of Sunkaankerny where the incident took place is on the outskirts of Valaichenai, in a high security zone surrounded by ten Sri Lankan police and army camps.

On the same day, the Sri Lankan troops from the camps of Peythalai, Kalkudah and the Valaichenai fisheries harbour rounded up a large number of people in the villages of Puthukkudiyiruppu, Kannankikiramam, Kannakipuram, Peythalai, Pandimadu, and Vinayakapuram to the Peythalai camp and detained them there until late in the evening.

Some of the detainees were released yesterday.
