A contingent of 185 members of the Liberation Tigers (LTTE) arrived in Batticaloa from the northern Vanni region Monday evening with special commander for Batticaloa-Ampara, Mr.Robert and commander of women-wing Nilavini, leading the LTTE members who made the journey to Batticaloa to take part in the annual Heroes' Day celebration which falls on 27 November, sources said.

Seventy male soldiers and 115 female soldiers travelled in seven busses from Vanni starting at 7.20am.

The LTTE group was escorted by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers from Omanthai to Karuththapaalam (Black Bridge) in Chenkaladi from where the group travelled to their destination inside the LTTE controlled area, the sources said.

Sources said that this is the same group that travelled from Batticaloa to Vanni in September of this year.
