Woman injured in SLA shelling

[TamilNet, Saturday, 09 October 1999, 10:34 GMT]
A 47 year old woman who was seriously wounded on Thursday night in the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) shelling of Thadumunai in Vaakarai was brought to Valaichenai hospital yesterday evening around 4 p.m. said sources. Vaakarai is about 35 km. north of Valaichenai.

The woman was wounded when the SLA retaliated around 10 p.m. Thursday night after the Liberation Tigers had fired shells on Vaakarai camp, the sources said.

Her relatives went to the Vaakarai SLA camp yesterday morning to get permission to transport her to Valaichenai. The army, however, had told them that she could be treated at the camp, and refused to give permission.

Latter in the afternoon the SLA gave permission to transport the woman to hospital.

Hospital sources said the woman had been bleeding and is in a very weak condition.
