Milk powder banned

[TamilNet, Thursday, 03 December 1998, 14:40 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Army (SLA) yesterday banned milk powder to villages south of Nagar Kovil on Jaffna's south-eastern coast. Civilians living in this region face a lot restrictions by the SLA on the quantity and kind of essential items they can take with them.

The army says that it has to prevent the Liberation Tigers operating in the area from getting supplies through the civilians living here and this is why it has to ban several essential items from time to time.

The ban on milk powder is unreasonable say residents.

It will only affect the children in the region they say.

Some of them told TamilNet that the SLA knows full well that the Tiger units in the south-eastern coast of Jaffna have enough sources of supply and do not have to depend on civilians for their survival.
