Sunday's convoy sailed after an agreement was brokered by the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM) which is tasked with overseeing the cease-fire agreement between the Sri Lanka government and the LTTE.

The convoy is scheduled to leave Vaakarai for Mullaitivu Monday morning with eighty LTTE members who would be reporting for duty there, SLMM sources said.
