Sri Lankan TID orders police arrest of two Tamils from Mullaitivu

Sri Lankan counter terrorism officers arrested two Tamil men yesterday in Udaiyarkaddu, Mullaitivu, accusing them of having links to a former LTTE cadre who they claimed to have found in the possession of explosives.

The officers from Puthukkudiyiruppu Police Station in Mullaitivu were reportedly instructed to arrest the two men by the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID).

Sri Lankan police are reportedly carrying out further investigations.

The latest arrest comes as several Tamils, including former LTTE cadres, have been arrested across the North-East in recent months.
