[TamilNet, Thursday, 04 September 2008, 07:17 GMT]
Unidentified persons triggered a second Claymore attack Wednesday midnight, killing a Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier and injuring some others, on a SLA vehicle on its way from Yaakkarai in Vadamaraadchi to Kappoothu in Thenmaraadchi on Point Pedro- Chaavakachcheari main road at Vi’raali located on the boundary between Vadamaraadchi and Thenmaraadchi. The first attack Wednesday afternoon had targeted a Bufflel Armored Personnel Carrier killing one soldier and injuring three in Kapoothu area, sources in Jaffna said.

SLA launched an extensive cordon and search Thursday from 7:00 a.m, in the area north of A9 road from Nu’naavil junction, enclosing Madduvil, Charasaalai, Kappoothu, Kalvayal and Ke’rudaavil.

Vehicles were not permitted to use Point Pedro-Chaavakachcheari road from Thursday morning in the search which continued until afternoon.

Even NGO demining workers and governments officials on their way to work were not allowed by the SLA either to enter or exit the areas under its cordon and search.

The search was concentrated particularly in the mangrove land stretch between Charasaalai and Kapoothu areas.

SLA has officially said that one soldier was killed and three injured in the first Claymore attack Wednesday afternoon.
