Jaffna to observe day of mourning

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 March 2005, 23:33 GMT]
Civil groups have called residents of Jaffna district to observe Monday as a mourning day in remembrance of Miss Nagendran Thulashika (12), a Grade 7 student and Mr. M. Kathirgamu (65) killed on Friday in two separate incidents, sources in Jaffna said.

Ms Thulashika was killed when a speeding army vehicle knocked her while going to Jaffna Vembadi Girls College. Mr Kathirgamu died when Sri Lanka police fired at the crowd at the entrance to the Jaffna University when members of public protested against the killing of the student.

Organizers said the mourning day would be observed without disturbing the normalcy of the district. Black flags will be flown on all buildings including schools, government offices, corporations and public places.

Students would assemble at sharp 11 a.m. in their schools in the district and observe three minutes silence, sources said.
