Arrangements underway for civilian movement from Muttur - LTTE

[TamilNet, Friday, 04 August 2006, 04:52 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) Friday morning said their cadres were making arrangements to safely transport all civilians out of the Muttur town to remote locations as Sri Lanka Army shells continued to hit civilian refuges in the town. The LTTE has urged the ICRC and other humanitarian agencies to enable humanitarian assistance to the displaced people.

"We are making necessary arrangements to move civilians from Muttur to safer locations via Kiliveddy," said Irasiah Ilanthirayan, the military spokesman of the Liberation Tigers.

At least 26 civilians were killed and 69 wounded in Muttur during the past two days.
