Bomb hoax disrupts southern coastal train service

[TamilNet, Thursday, 08 May 2008, 10:56 GMT]
A parcel found in a compartment of a train arriving in Panadura railway station from Chilaapam on Tuesday created tension in the area, and suspended train services for several hours, sources said. Services resumed after the bomb disposal squad of the SLA took the parcel and found old clothes inside the package.

Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and police rushed to the station and launched a cordon and search operation in the area on receipt of information.

Sri Lanka Police have issued a warning to all passengers and members of public in the area to be alert on abandoned parcels and other materials found in public places, buses and trains.
