Sri Lanka Army and Police Tuesday conducted combined cordon and search operations in several Tamil villages in and around Morawewa division in Trincomalee district and took about twenty five Tamil civilians into custody following the attack on a patrolling group of the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) that took place in the morning at Veappanku'lam which is located along Trincomalee-Anuradhapura highway about 15 miles from east port town.

SLAF media spokesman Janaka Nanayakkara said a group of LTTE cadres hiding in the jungles of Morawewa had attacked the SLAF patrol group. One SLAF soldiers was seriously injured and admitted to the hospital.

Muthaliku'lam was a traditional Tamil village. The name has been changed into Morawewa after the state aided colonization that took place after the country gained independence in the year 1948, sixty one years ago.
