SLN patrols increase, UAV sighted in Mullaitivu

[TamilNet, Friday, 11 April 2003, 11:38 GMT]
Sri Lanka Navy (SLN) has increased its patrol activities in the Mullaitivu seas recently, and five fishermen who were threatened and had their boats inspected by the SLN this week while fishing in Mullaitivu seas have made complains to the local authorities, sources in Mullaitivu said.

Spokesperson for the Fisheries Union in Mullaitivu said that fishermen are increasingly scared to go deeper seas away from the shore. This has resulted in shortage in seafood and increase of prices for fish.

Meanwhile, residents in Mullaitivu have reported yesterday sighting an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) of the Sri Lanka Airforce (SLA) that circled in Mullaitivu district at low heights. Residents expressed concern and fear of the increasing military activities of the Security forces in their region.
