Two Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers were seriously injured when unidentified attackers detonated a claymore mine at a foot patrol of twelve SLA soldiers in Vantharumoolai, 17 km northwest of Batticaloa town. The attack took place Monday morning around 7:30 a.m. near the Eastern University building on Batticaloa - Valaichenai main road, police said.

Wounded troopers S. Kalaratna, 23, and corporal T.M.G Appuhamy,40, were rushed to Polannaruwa Hospital.

The soldiers in the patrol opened fire following the attack and attacked two youths in the vicinity, civilian sources said.

The foot patrol was heading to Kaluwankerny from Kommanthurai.

A convoy of SLA and Police vehicles narrowly escaped from a roadside bomb in Morakoddanchenai, 4 km away from Vantharumoolai, Sunday evening around 5:30 p.m. The bomb missed the target, a bus with 30 policemen, police further said.
