Journalists to visit forward areas

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 17 February 1998, 23:59 GMT]
The Sri Lankan government will fly in a group of journalists from newspapers and news agencies in Colombo to Vavuniya and the forward areas of operation Jayasikurui tomorrow morning. The government's information department informed journalists today about the tour this afternoon.

Sources in the department said that the army might take the press to the vicinity of the Mankulam town along the A9 from Vavuniya. However, army sources in Vavuniya were unable to confirm this.

The SLA claims that the Troops of Operation Jayasikurui are now on the edge of the Mankulam town and will take it in a day or two.
