[TamilNet, Sunday, 21 January 2007, 11:22 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army troopers started firing artillery air-shots into Point Pedro sea as a number of Sea Tiger boats were observed Sunday evening in the harbour around 4:00 p.m., according to the residents in Point Pedro. A cargo ship, CITY OF LIVERPOOL, which is used for bringing supplies to Sri Lanka government troops and civilians in northern Jaffna peninsula, was leaving Pt.Pedro harbour when the firing began. The ship was surrounded by the Sea Tiger boats from 3:45 p.m. till 5:45 p.m. SLN boats approached the site after the Sea Tiger vessels returned.

The ship is now anchored about 4 nautical miles from the Pt.Pedro shores.

About 10 Sri Lanka Navy personnel and 15 civilian workers were on board the ship, according to port officials at Pt.Pedro.

The cargo ship unloaded supplies at Point Pedro during the day time.
