[TamilNet, Friday, 28 July 2006, 07:28 GMT]
Two persons who were travelling in a three-wheeler from the SLA controlled territory were killed when explosives in their vehicle exploded at the gateway of the LTTE held Monkeykattu area in Vavunathivu in Batticaloa district, Friday noon. The three- wheeler was destroyed in the explosion, LTTE officials in Batticaloa said. The victims were suspected be persons who were abducted by the Sri Lankan troopers and their paramilitaries as a person left the three-wheeler towards SLA FDL seconds before the three-wheeler exploded.

A man was seen leaving the three-wheeler before it reached the LTTE FDL.

"It was a big explosion. We suspect it targeted our FDL position," LTTE Batticaloa District Political Head Daya Mohan said.

The three-wheeler exploded when it reached the first forward defence line of the LTTE in Monkeykattu.

However, the LTTE sources did not rule out the possibilty of the victims being members of a paramilitary group, who were carrying explosives into the LTTE controlled territory.

Separately, the body of a young man was found with gun shot injuries at Thaandavanveli junction in Batticaloa town, around 6:30 a.m., Friday, police in the eastern town said.
