Four soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army were injured in two separate grenade attacks in Trincomalee and Muttur since early morning Wednesday. With these casualties the number of soldiers injured in grenade attacks and firing increased to six and policemen to thirteen since Tuesday following the general shut down called by Tamil District Tamil Peoples Forum (TDTPF) condemning the killings of LTTE cadres at Chelvanayakapuram on Sunday, police said.

Three soldiers in Muttur were injured when an unidentified person threw a grenade on a group of army soldiers on duty near a welfare centre on Wednesday early morning 1.30 a.m. A child was also injured in the incident.

All have been admitted in the Trincomalee general hospital, police said.

In another incident that took place Wednesday morning around 10.30 a.m. at Gandhinagar, a suburb of Trincomalee a soldier of the SLA sustained injuries when a grenade was thrown at him, police said.
