2 Police constables killed in Jaffna claymore attack

[TamilNet, Friday, 01 December 2006, 11:48 GMT]
Two Sri Lanka Police constables were killed when unknown assailants triggered a claymore mine fitted to a motorcycle parked near the junction of Clock Tower road and Hospital road in the security reinforced high security zone (HSZ) near Jaffna town Friday 3:00 p.m., sources in Jaffna said.

The victims were walking towards the Police station located on the Clock Tower road when the attack happened.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) has closed all main arteries that lead to Jaffna town except two one-way streets, one to enter the town and the other to leave the town, civil society sources said.

SLA has prohibited parking of buses and autos inside the to areas, and have directed the vehicles to use the Open esplanade 500 meters away near Pannai bridge for parking.

Meanwhile, the Transport Board in the Northeast, curtailed bus services as a mark of protest against relocating the bus stand to Pannai. Only school buses were seen running on Friday, residents in Jaffna said.
