Navy intelligence officers threaten Tamils protesting against land grabs in Kayts

Residents in Kayts protesting on Thursday against the ongoing occupation of private land by the Sri Lankan navy were threatened by the navy's intelligence officers warning them to stop the protest. 

Over 25 families, who lived in 3 acres of land surrounding a navy base, remain displaced as a result of the navy's occupation of their land. 

The navy base was itself built on occupied land over 10 years ago.
