The public passing by the camp are being shown the two bodies which are on display in Razeek's camp.

Sources in Batticaloa said this evening that the bodies would be handed over to the Batticaloa hospital nearby tomorrow after they begin to decompose tonight. The hospital will then hand them over to the ICRC.

The Razeek group is doing this to create fear among potential young recruits said the sources who were sceptical that the two boys killed in Thalavai are members of the LTTE.
