Attack on tsunami refugee camp

@ BBC Sinhala

Two soldiers and a refugee girl were injured in the attack on a camp
Police in eastern Sri Lanka say suspected Tamil Tiger rebels have attacked a tsunami relief camp.
Officers said the rebels threw a bomb at a security post in the camp in Muttur south of Trincomalee.

Two soldiers, MAND Bandara, DL Maduranga and a refugee girl, Aswi Askana (4) are among the injured.

Rohan Abeywardhana, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of police in charge of the eastern province told BBC Sandeshaya that the LTTE may be carrying out attacks on retaliation to the attack on LTTE office in Ambavallipuram government farm, Trincomalee.

Trincomalee Lakbima reporter RG Dharmadasa said the area has been tense since Sunday when three Tamil Tigers and a supporter were killed in the attack.

Another soldier, KD piyadasa, was injured in a grenade attack on Sri Lanka Army bunker in Surangla on Wan Ela-Kinniya road.

There has been another grenade attack on soldiers stationed in Trincomalee town on Wednesday. No one was hurt in the incident.

Police have arrested a motorcycle and a suspect regarding the Trincomalee incident.

DIG Abeywardhana described them as “minor incidents.”

The injured have been admitted to Trincomalee hospital.

There is no word on the incident as yet from the rebels.

On Tuesday, the rebels threatened to resume military action after Sunday's killing of the senior Tamil Tiger figures.

The rebels blamed military intelligence agents for the attack but this was denied by the military. It said factional fighting could be the cause of the killings.
