[TamilNet, Friday, 05 February 1999, 18:42 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Army (SLA) sent the bodies of three Tigers through the ICRC to the LTTE's main office in the vanni today. One of the three died when he took cyanide during a round up by the SLA at Koomankulam, a suburb of Vavuniya yesterday.

The SLA had gone to the spot on specific information they had received about the presence of the youth in the area.

The other two were those of two Tigers who had been killed in confrontations with the SLA at Mankulam yesterday.

The three bodies were taken in a Sri Lanka Red Cross Society (SLRC) vehicle to the Vanni. Meanwhile the Tigers said in the Vanni today that three of their troops were killed in two confrontations at Mankulam on February 3.

They were: Lt.Kuhanila (Dharmalingam Kalaivaani of Batticaloa) 2nd Lt. Ranjitha (Shanmugam Gunalatchumy of Batticaloa) and Mehavaasan (Nadarajah Selvaraja of Amparai).
