SLAF bombardment disturbs examinations in Mullaiththeevu

[TamilNet, Thursday, 26 July 2007, 20:14 GMT]
Students attending second term examinations in the schools at Puthukkudiyiruppu, Mullaiththeevu and Mangku'lam in Vanni were disturbed by the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers that flew at low altitude and bombed two villages in Mullaiththeevu district, twice Thursday. The SLAF bombardment, causing panic to the students, comes as Vanni prepares to mark the first death-anniversary of 51 schoolgirls, killed in SLAF bombing last August at Vallipunam in Mullaiththeevu.

Two Kfir bombers flew over Muththaiyankaddu and Oddisuddaan villages for forty minutes from 9:05 a.m. Thursday and attacked the villages twice, dropping 8 bombs.

Later, at 12:40 p.m., the bombers returned to the same location and attacked the villages again with 8 more bombs.

School children attending the examinations sought safety in bunkers.
