Terrorist Claymore Mines Fail (Sri Lanka)
WANNI: TIGER TERRORISTS TAKING shelter in un-cleared areas in MANNAR this morning (19) triggered two claymores using remote-controllers while a Police team was conducting a routine road-clearing patrol on MANNAR-VAVUNIYA road.
The Police team serving sector-4 near the 21st Km post along the road after observing some movements away from their location turned alert after firing a few warning shots into the air with a view to chasing any violent elements.
However, as the Police team began inching forward, hiding terrorists triggered two claymores simultaneously aiming the Police team but the Police personnel managed to escape unhurt in the explosion.
Reinforcements rushed in and conducted a search in the area after firing a couple of mortar shots where those terrorists were moving.
