Unidentified persons Wednesday night threw two grenades at the Peoples Liberation Organization of Tamil Eelam (PLOTE) office building located in front of Jaffna Teaching Hospital inside the High Security Zone in the center of Jaffna town. First grenade was thrown at about 8.55 a.m and the second around 9.15 p.m., Jaffna Police said.

PLOTE sources said no PLOTE activists were inside the office during the two incidents.

The Jaffna district office of the PLOTE, earlier located at Jaffna-Vembadi road, was also subjected to grenade attack a few times.

Later army and police provided security to that office. Later the office was shifted to the present site near where the Sri Lanka Army's 51 Brigade headquarters and Jaffna Police stations are located.
