Christian family wounded in DPU attack in Madu

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 28 February 2007, 09:33 GMT]
A 4-year-old girl, 15-year-old boy and their parents riding in a motorbike to Madu church from Andankulam through parappukandanthan road were wounded in a Sri Lanka Army Deep Penetration Unit Claymore attack Wednesday around 10:00 a.m., 6 km away from the church. This is the second DPU attack on civilians inside Liberation Tigers territory within the last 24 hours.

Henry Anthonymuttu, 40, a farmer, his wife Henry Uchrista, 42, and their children Angele Shiami, 04 and Sam Surendran Henry, 15, were wounded and rushed to Adampan District Hospital by the ICRC and later transferred to Mannar General Hospital.

The attack was reported at Periyavil on Parappukadanthan Road.

On Tuesday, a school principal was killed and an education official was wounded in Madu.

The ambush units known as Deep Penetration Units (DPUs) are officially named Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) units, is a borrowed term from the LRRP/Ranger detachments deployed for covert operations by the U.S. military in the Vietnam war.

The Sri Lankan LRRP units are increasingly deployed to attack civilian vehicles in addition to military targets in the LTTE territory.
