Unmanned Vehicle seen in Killinochchi

[TamilNet, Friday, 14 March 2003, 12:06 GMT]
An Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) was seen in skies above Kilinochchi and Mankulam, circling and flying in different directions around 10 am for half an hour Friday, sources in Kilinochchi said.

Sources in the Vanni said this was the first UAV seen in Killinochchi since the signing of a ceasefire agreement between the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

However the sources added UAVs were frequently seen on spy missions along the coast of Mullaitivu even after the ceasefire agreement came into force.
