Air strike, artillery fire, acts of provocation- LTTE

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 26 April 2006, 12:08 GMT]
Sri Lanka security forces began air attacks and artillery fire without any provacation from the Liberation Tigers, Mr. S.Puleedevan, Secretary General of the LTTE’s peace secretariat in Kilinochchi told TamilNet. He accused the Sri Lanka Government of carrying out the attacks after blocking the Muttur east area, and issuing false reports. "Colombo is issuing false reports accusing the Tigers of an attack on a Sri Lanka Navy vessel. There was no such attack, the accusations are baseless," he said.
