The VOT also said that the LTTE had attacked the Arisimalai army detachment in the Pulmoddai area north of Trincomalee and killed two soldiers.

The army unit had been ambushed around 6.30 a.m. in the morning while it was returning from the place where it normally slept during the night for fear of night attacks on the camp by the LTTE.

The Tigers, according to the VOT, had captured from the Arisimalai army an AK LMG, large number of rounds, link ammunition, magazines and a sophisticated communications set.
