The remains of at least two Tamil Eelam flags and LTTE uniforms have been uncovered in Mullivaikkal on Wednesday, more than a decade after tens of thousands of Tamils were killed in a Sri Lankan military offensive in 2009.
The findings, discovered by a local in the area, have now been handed over to the Sri Lankan security forces.
Earlier this year, the skeletal remains of an LTTE cadre were also discovered in Mullivaikkal, adjacent to a Sri Lankan military's 681 Brigade camp.
To date, no one has been held accountable for the atrocities committed a decade ago.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
