[TamilNet, Saturday, 03 December 2005, 11:55 GMT]
A civilian traveller was seriously wounded when Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers opened fire following a grenade attack on their checkpost in Kantharmadam, close to Parameswara Junction on Palaly Road in Jaffna around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Normalcy was reported in many areas of Jaffna, except in Neerveli, where the funeral of the farmers shot and killed on Thursday took place Saturday.

The civilian, Mr. L. Gopiraj, 29, from Alvaddey, wounded in SLA gunfire in Kantharmadam, is being treated at the Intensive Care Unit in Jaffna Hospital, medical sources said.

Another SLA checkpost located in Kondavil Junction on Palaly Road came under gunfire by two motorbike-riding gunmen Saturday noon. No casualties were reported.

The Jaffna - Point Pedro and Rasaveethy main roads remained blocked for traffic as Neerveli residents mourned the two farmers allegedly killed by paramilitary and intelligence operatives collaborating with SLA Thursday.

The funeral of the two victims were held in Neerveli on Saturday.
