[TamilNet, Thursday, 19 June 2003, 18:39 GMT]
Two unidentified men who came in a Hero Honda motorbike Thursday night around seven and lobbed a grenade inside the premises of the political office of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) which is located along Wyman Road in Jaffna town, civil sources said.

However the grenade fell close to the Public Relation Office (PRO) of the LTTE inside the compound and did not explode. At that time members of the public and LTTE political activists were seated inside the PRO office, civilian sources said.

Unidentified men who were riding the motorbike were seen wearing white colored helmets, sources said.

Members of the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) based in Jaffna immediately rushed to the site on being informed by LTTE political activists. SLMM monitors inspected the site and gathered information surrounding the incident, sources said.

Authorities concerned have not yet deactivated the grenade, sources said.
