[TamilNet, Monday, 19 May 2008, 15:57 GMT]
Sri Lanka Army (SLA) in Jaffna peninsula deployed more than a thousand soldiers in a large scale cordon and search operations Monday from dawn till 5:00 p.m in areas of Vadamaraadchi and Thenmaraadchi, civil society sources from Jaffna said. Information on anyone being arrested in the search is not known. SLA soldiers, during search in houses, took away the computers saying that the owners can come and get them after investigation from the SLA camps, according to sources.

The cordon and search was conducted in areas including Thunnalai, Karaveddi, and Yaakkaru.

Similar search operations were launched last three days in Thunnalai and the areas around it.

The searches were well planned where soldiers combed the areas, section by section.

Meanwhile, SLA celebrated Vesak Festival Monday, erecting Vesak Pandals and Arches near their camps in Jaffna peninsula.

SLA soldiers offered sweets to pedestrians and passengers in vehicles passing by the Vesak decorations and motifs.

Thousands of soldiers were engaged in the cordon and search operations in Vadamaraadchi and Thenmaraadchi areas despite the day being Vesak Day, celebrated by the Buddhists in Sri Lanka.
