Five more Wanni cadres killed

DM, 28MAR2005

Five LTTE Wanni cadres were killed in two separate incidents on Saturday as clashes for supremacy in the east between the Wanni cadres and the Karuna faction continued.

Military sources said at Kulawadiya in Tharavikulam, a group of Karuna's men ambushed and killed four Wanni cadres and fled with the victim's weapons on Saturday about 10 pm.

Sources believe that the Wanni cadres were sent to the area by the Wanni leadership to gun down several Karuna faction fighters.

In a separate incident, a Wanni cadre who was riding a motorcycle towards Tharavikulam area in Batticaloa was gunned down by a suspected Karuna cadre, killing him on the spot on Saturday morning.

In the recent past the internal clashes had killed a dozen on both sides in the east, mostly in Batticaloa area.
