All the 23 civilians, including the 21 students, in the custody of an LTTE unit attached to a training camp, were freed after an internal investigation initiated by LTTE Commander Ram.

Two teachers, Tharmarasa Vigneswaran and Velupillai Uthayakumar, were among the persons taken by the LTTE unit from the tuition centre.

The Tigers have outlawed recruitment of under-17s and participation in combat of under-18s.

Tamileelam Child Protection Act 2006 (Act No. 03 of 2006), was enacted in October by the Tamileelam legislatature, making education compulsory upto grade 11.

The Act would be fully enforced by January 2007, according to the Tigers.
