A commando team of the Liberation Tigers of Tamileelam (LTTE), attached to the Batticaloa Command of the Tigers, attacked a Field-bike Road Patrol of the Sri Lanka Army, killing two SLA soldiers Tuesday around 3:00 p.m. in Maha Oya division of Ampaa'rai district, according to a media release issued by the political division of the LTTE in Batticaloa. Meanwhile, LTTE's Ampaa'rai command claimed that a Sri Lankan Special Task Force (STF) commando was killed in a booby trap explosion in Kangchikudichchaa'ru in Ampaa'rai.

Five STF commandos sustained serious injuries in the explosion in Kagnchikudichchaa'ru, the Tigers said. The explosion took place at 11:40 a.m. when the STF commandos on a search operation entered a booby-trapped area. The field-bike used by the SLA road patrol in Maha Oya was also destroyed in the attack, carried out at a locality in the east of the river in the region, the Tigers said.
