Mannar was yesterday gripped by tension and panic after the discovery of four bodies of one family, including two children in Thomaspura, police said.

Mannar police said suspected LTTE gunmen had stormed the house of this family, and massacred the members around midnight on Thursday.

Police said they found three of the four bodies hung inside their home.
The victims were identified as Mary Meadaline (27), Moorthy Martin (35), Ann Nilxon (7) and A. Luxica (9).

?The attackers had gang-raped the woman before killing her. The couple had been providing information to the army for a long time?, an army official claimed.

Additional military personnel had been deployed in the area as a precautionary measure as large crowds thronged the area to witness the gruesome scene.

The SLMM had also visited the scene.
Meanwhile, the Tamilnet website reported that the massacre was allegedly carried out by elements of the Army, but Military spokesman Prasad Samarsinghe said it was another fabricated story by the LTTE to discredit the security forces personnel. Suspected Tamil Tigers also shot and injured a Grama Sevaka of the Kopay Central division at his house yesterday morning.

Military sources said that the 58 year-old Joseph Ratnarajah, was at his home when suspected LTTE gunmen arrived on a motorcycle and shot and fled the scene.

This is definitely the work of state security forces. These acts becoming very common in the NE. UN forces are needed to protect the civilians in the NE since the president has no control, desire or ability to punish the state terrorists, bad elements of the security forces.

Where is the IC? Why don't they ban the state for it's terror?

Born liars, it is a sickness it looks like, a genetic disorder.

Even the racial riots, which SL is very famous for were carried out by the LTTE.

Army Spokesman Samarasinge said that in 1956 LTTE goons hijacked the lorries belonged to the GODB and went on killing the Tamils.

Even on that famous Kotti Friday in 1983 when all the lions ran away then the LTTE goons got into lorries and busses and went on killing the Tamils in Colombo and else where.

Samarasinghe further said that it was the LTTE that asked all the Sinhalese to run away so that they could get at the Tamils.

Now the investigators have found that all the killings of Tamils in the N&E are the work of the LTTE as they have come to an agreement with the Sinhalese to wipe out the Tamils and LTTE is now competing with Karuna Amman and EPDP. Whoever produce more Tamil heads will get more portfolios.

What is shocking is the fact that even the burning of Jaffna public library was the work of the LTTE and the blame was put on the innocent proud policemen and poor Sinhala leaders like Cyril Mathew and Gamini Dissanayake.

Sinhalese know too well that they are modayas otherwise they won't come out with such trash since these news are for their consumption only.

How can any one trust them and have any form of dialog with them. The conduct of the military and its handlers are disgraceful. I am complelled to believe that they won't even hesitate to eat the human flesh too.

These killings and rapes are happening in the Government controlled areas during the last 6 months. There are police to maintain law and order and apprehend the culprits. Why hasn't the police identified any of the offenders yet? Is it that the investigations leads to those the police try to protect. What could by any other explanation for their inaction?

Sintamus,

very interesting nada knew that LTTE existed even in 1956.

Even on that famous Kotti Friday in 1983 when all the lions ran away then the LTTE goons got into lorries and busses and went on killing the Tamils in Colombo and else where.


I did not know that on a so called Koti Friday that Tamils were killed in Colombo.

Now the investigators have found that all the killings of Tamils in the N&E are the work of the LTTE as they have come to an agreement with the Sinhalese to wipe out the Tamils and LTTE is now competing with Karuna Amman and EPDP. Whoever produce more Tamil heads will get more portfolios.

nada is bringing up some information the public was not aware of , for instance we thought that it was Cyril Mathew and Gamini Dissanayake behind the burning of Jaffna library. It appears that Prabhakaran could have done that to stir Tamil emotions against the GOSL . For Prabakaran who is a school drop out and not being an intellectual as well as being from a lower cast, Jaffna library probably did not have much significance knowing how the upper cast Tamils exploited and discriminate Tamils of lower casts. It was the upper cast Tamils of Jaffna who dominated in education and wealth too so he tried to kill two birds with one stone. He was quite successful killing the upper cast Tamil intellectuals but only had little success with Singhalese.
