Sinhala DPU resumes offensive in Vavuniya

Three members of the Tamil Eelam Auxiliary Force were injured at around 12pm on Thursday when the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) Deep Penetration Unit (DPU) exploded a claymore mine in Semamadu, Vavuniya.

DPU activities in Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) administered Vavuniya region died down after the assassination of Major-General Parami Kulatunga in June 2006.

The Auxiliary Force members were engaged in a regular road clearing operation when the mine exploded, LTTE sources said. Earlier in the year, SLA DPU had killed several civilians traveling on roads in the region.
