Six wounded in Trinco attack

[TamilNet, Thursday, 18 October 2001, 02:58 GMT]
Four military trained police personnel and two Sri Lankan army soldiers were seriously injured around midnight Wednesday in a attack by the Liberation Tigers on the combined security post at Neduntheevu in the Kinniya division, about eighteen kilometres southwest of Trincomalee town, defense sources said. One of the injured policemen is reported to be in critical condition.

The injured were admitted to the Trincomalee base hospital in the early hours of Thursday, medical sources said.

Military sources in the eastern port town said that Liberation Tigers used mortars and small arms to attack the security post. The post was overwhelmed after a brief attack and some Policemen had deserted their positions, the sources added.

The Neduntheivu combined police-army detachment is situated about one km from Aalankerni, a Tamil village, which is about 5 km from Kinniya town.

Kinniya, a predominantly Muslim town, is about 12 km southwest of Trincomalee. There is also a Police post at Poovarasantheevu one km from Neduntheevu.
