Explosion kills SLA soldier, injures another in Valikaamam HSZ

[TamilNet, Monday, 27 September 2010, 18:06 GMT]
A Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldier was killed and another seriously injured when a device exploded Monday evening during a search operation conducted by SLA soldiers in Maaviddapuram area in the SLA High Security Zone (HSZ) in Valikaamam North occupied by SLA, a media report Monday night from Palaali SLA Head Quarter said. This incident has occurred in the context of Sri Lanka Government saying that people are to be allowed to resettle in their own properties in places excluding the areas around Palaali SLA base in Valikaamam North. Maaviddapuram is located in an area out of Palaali HSZ.

The body of the soldier killed was first taken to Palaali Military Hospital and then sent to his home town while the seriously injured soldier is under treatment in the same hospital.

It is not possible to confirm the report as there are no independent sources of information.
