Unidentified gunmen lobbed a grenade inside Liberation Tigers Political office in Puthukudiyiruppu, Valaichenai Tuesday evening at 5.45 PM, sources in Batticaloa said. The attackers fired shots towards the building before dousing the windows and the fence with gasoline and setting them ablaze. No one was injured in the attack. Tension prevailed in Valaichenai following the attack.

LTTE officials stationed at the office managed to escape from the scene before the attackers entered the building, sources said.

Two motorbikes were burned down by the attackers.

Valaichenai, an SLA controlled area, is located 32 km north of Batticaloa.

This is the second grenade attack on the LTTE office in Valaichenai within two months.
