Three paramilitary cadres killed, one captured - LTTE

Three paramilitary cadres who were on a penetration mission into the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam controlled area in Pendukalsenai, west of Kiran in Batticaloa district, were killed when Tigers launched a counter-attack on the attak group, LTTE's Kudumbimalai area coordinator Oliyan told media Tuesday. One paramilitary cadre was captured by the LTTE.

The dead bodies of the paramilitary caders were to be handed over to their relatives, Oliyan further said.

The Tigers also captured Claymore mines, grenades and automatic rifles from the group.

The killed persons were from Korakallimadu, Pendukalsenai and Kiran.

The attack group was also involved in the penetration mission last Thursday in Vakaneri, according to Oliyan.
