[TamilNet, Friday, 29 August 2008, 04:51 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) fleet of Dvora Fast Attack Crafts (FAC) opened fire Thursday morning around 6:00 a.m on fishermen engaged in fishing in the seas of Mullaiththeevu and on the coastal areas. Two fishermen narrowly escaped death while their boat was completely destroyed, sources in Mullaiththeevu said. Meanwhile SLN staged a similar attack on fishermen fishing in Vadamaraadchi east seas.

Fishermen Mohanathas and Nesan, fishing in Mullaiththeevu sea narrowly escaped death as they jumped into the sea but their boat was completely destroyed.

The two fishermen managed to swim back to the shore unhurt.

The other fishermen too rushed to the shore abandoning their fishing gears.

The fishermen’s huts and boats on the shore were damaged in the SLN attack.

Though SLN Dvora FACs launched a similar attack at the same time Thursday on the fishermen in Vadamaraadch east sea no one was hurt and there were no damages to their properties.
