Sri Lanka Navy bombards Trinco village

[TamilNet, Sunday, 15 April 2001, 18:52 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Navy bombarded Soodaikkudah, a coastal hamlet south of Trincomalee, Saturday afternoon on Tamil New Year, residents said. Four boats and a house were damaged when the Sri Lanka Navy gunboats shelled the village from 3.30 p.m. Saturday, according to them. People fled the village in November last year following persistent attacks by the SLN. They were sheltered as refugees in a school in Sampoor, a large village west of Soodaikudah until they resettled in February on an assurance the ICRC had obtained from the Navy.

The boats of Shanmugam Kangeswaran, Tharmarajah Subaskaran, Chitravel Jegatheeswaran and Manirajah Shanmugaratnam were severely damaged by the SLN shelling.

Thambaiah Navaratnamís house was hit by the bombardment.

Balasingham Kuharajah was killed when Soodaikkudah was shelled in November last year.
