Three Liberation Tigers were shot dead by the government forces in fresh clashes in the Vanni region security sources said. Soldiers on duty ahead of their defences sniped and killed two tigers north west of Oddusuddan and another tiger member was killed in a sniper fire at Kilinochchi on Wednesday, said the sources.

In the area west of Velankulam, one soldier was injured in an anti personnel mine explosion and two navy personnel were wounded in a claymore mine attack by the LTTE, the sources added.

According to the operational head quarters of the Ministry of Defence, a small stock of arms and ammunition were recovered in an abandoned house at Kokuvil in the Jaffna district.

This recovery was made by the security forces on a tip off by the civilians in the area, the communiqué issued by the operational head quarters said.
