[TamilNet, Saturday, 15 April 2006, 15:51 GMT]
"Our houses were burnt, properties were destroyed and we were attacked by thugs with knives and clubs while the State armed forces and police looked on. No one came to our rescue. We fled from our houses and sought refuge elsewhere to save our lives," several Tamil families sheltered in Varothiayanagar Bharathi Vidiyalam following fresh violence erupted Friday afternoon told Mr.K.Thurairatnasingham, Trincomalee district Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian when he visited them Saturday morning.

Mr.Thurairatnasingham made arrangements with the assistance of several non-governmental organizations to supply meals and other relief to the affected families.

One victim said thugs in front of the police sentry at Mihindapura had assaulted him but policemen on duty did not come to his rescue and he had to flee from the area to safe his life.

The office and other properties of Trincomalee District Youth Development Aham (TDYHD) were burnt down.

In the Friday violence more than fifty houses were set on fire and about one thousand Tamil civilians sought refuge in Varothiayanagar School and public buildings, sources said.
