Wanni exodus continue, 60 civilians seek protection with security
60 more civilians including 24 males and 36 females
from the non-liberated areas of Mullaittivu District have arrived at
Tanduwan general area, 4km Northwest of Nedunkerni today (Dec 22)
These civilians all locals in Mullaittivu district
have sought protection with security forces following a desperate escape
made from the LTTE Wanni hellhole. Thousands are reported stranded with
LTTE as defence observers believe the actual figures to be more than the
elaborated numbers recently.
Apart from carrying out genocidal attacks targeting
both the Muslim and Sinhalese communities in the south, LTTE terrorists
are also shrinking the Tamil populace in Wanni, luring both young and
old to its insane separatist cause through intimidations and brutal
methods, the sources asserted.
Nedunkerni was liberated by the Task Force -4 troops
on Sunday (Dec 21), after hours of fierce fighting with LTTE.
