[TamilNet, Tuesday, 11 September 2007, 10:56 GMT]
About ten thousand displaced families from Eachchilampaththu division in Trincomalee district have been resettled in 22 villages located in nine Grama Niladhari divisions. The IDPs fled from their villages to Batticaloa district due to the military operation launched by the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) last year, according to Eachchilampathu divisional secretariat sources.

The displaced families were brought in busses from Batticaloa district in several stages and were given temporary accomodation in transit welfare centres located in government-controlled areas in Moothoor division before being resettled.

Each resettled family is being supplied with dry ration for one thousand rupees per week for a period of six months, divisional sources said.
