[TamilNet, Wednesday, 12 March 2003, 17:29 GMT]
Black flags were hoisted on public buildings, business houses and educational institutions and a day of mourning was observed in Jaffna district Wednesday for the death of eleven senior cadres of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), civil sources said.

Eleven LTTE cadres were killed Monday when their merchant vessel was sunk in the international waters off northeast coast following an attack by the Sri Lanka Navy, sources said.

The offices of LTTE in the peninsula were also decorated with coconut leaves and black flags. Thamileelam national flag was flown at half-mast at Ellankulam war memorial and other war cemeteries in Vadamarachchi and other divisions, sources said.

Meanwhile, SLA soldiers who were on patrol duty Wednesday intimidated several traders when they were engaged in making arrangement for the day of mourning, sources said.
