Sri Lanka beefs up seacoast security in South

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 14 November 2007, 15:23 GMT]
The security of the Galle harbour and several fishing jetties in the southern coast of the country has been tightened with effect from Monday following the detection of two fast crafts speeding in the southern sea between Rakawa and Tangalle. Detachments of Sri Lanka Navy located in Galle and Tangalle have put on red alert with Dora gunship patrolling the sea, Colombo media reports said.

Two unidentified crafts had been spotted on Monday evening around 4 p.m. along southern coast and the onlookers immediately had conveyed the message to the Sri Lankan armed forces, according to media reports.

Several checkpoints of the Sri Lanka Police have been set up in the southern coastal villages, 11 posts in Kathirkaamam (Kateregama), 9 posts in Thissamaharama and 6 posts in Lunugamvehera.
