[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 February 2000, 13:36 GMT]
The Liberation Tigers announced today that 3 military trained policemen were killed when they attacked a sentry post near the Central college in Mutur, south of Trincomalee, around 8.00 a.m. this morning.

The remaining police personal vacated the sentry post in the initial phase of the attack, and took cover in the school building, sources said.

The Tigers said the sentry post was under their control for nearly 15 minutes. They left the area after removing weapons and military equipment. One AK light machine gun, one T-56 assault riffle, eleven 40mm shell, 3 grenades and 100s of medium range rounds were among the weapons captured by them, the Tigers said.

Bazeer Ajith, grade 8 student of the school was injured in cross fire, school sources said. They said the school will remained closed for 2 days. Parents and school authorities have appealed for the immediate removal of the police sentry post.

Security sources said the body of a policeman was recovered close to the sentry post. The Tigers said they attacked police reinforcements who rushed to the area from Iluppaiyadichenai and added that the Kaddaiparichaan Sri Lanka Army camp was also shelled. Details of damage were not immediately known.
