Special Forces of the Liberation Tigers' Jeyanthan Regiment Saturday morning attacked a group of heavily armed paramilitary cadres northwest of Batticaloa, killing two and wounding three around 6.30 a.m., LTTE sources in the east said. The group of ten men from the paramilitary led by renegade LTTE commander 'Karuna' were in a safe house in Omadiyamadu near the Polannaruwa-Batticaloa district border, the sources said.

"We recovered an AK-47-2 assault rifle from them. Those who escaped ran towards an Sri Lanka army position near Omadiyamadu", the LTTE source said.

"The bodies of the two paramilitary cadres killed in the attack was brought to Vakarai later in the day. We have asked their parents to take the bodies", he added.

The dead paramilitary cadres were identified as 'Vicky' and 'Niththy', according to him.

Omadiyamdu is about 28 kilometres west of Vakarai.
