[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 September 2008, 06:29 GMT]
Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombers that flew over Vanni as Black Tigers were engaged in causing destruction to Sri Lankan joint operations headquarters for Vanni in the early hours of Tuesday, bombed Puthukkudiyiruppu town, three times, with bombs that caused deep craters, according to TamilNet correspondent who visited the site. The bombers hit the premises of Sree Subramaniya Viththiyaalam school with bunker-busting bomb, where the Zonal Education Office for Mullaiththeevu zone, is also located. One house, four shops, a bookshop and a mill in the town also sustained damage in the attack. One civilian was wounded.

A 50-year-old woman, identified as Ms. Sulojana, was wounded.

The principal of the school, residing in the apartment inside the school premises, escaped with inner injuries, a civil official told TamilNet.

The official said all the 11 buildings of the school would require re-construction.
