The conference was held in the presence of the SLMM Trincomalee Mr.Abdel Burkan, sources said.

The officers in charge of the police stations in Chinabay, Kinniya and Alankerni attended the conference.

The unrest in Kinniya began Thursday with the hartal called by a group of Muslims to condemn the abduction of a cart with bulls by unknown persons. The Muslim group had claimed that LTTE cadres had abducted the cart. However LTTE denied it as a baseless accusation, sources said.
