The Tigers recovered, among other weapons, an RPGLMG, T-56 assault rifles, 40 mm. mortars, and hundreds of medium range rounds, the radio further said.

Initial reports, quoting security sources in Vavuniya said 5 policemen were killed and 9 wounded in a claymore blast.

One SLA soldier was killed in the ensuing fire-fight which lasted for nearly 10 minutes, the radio said. The Tigers did not suffer any casualties, the radio added.

Puththur is about 18 km. north-east of Jaffna town.
