TNA youth coordinator's home attacked

The home of the youth coordinator for the TNA on the islets in Jaffna has been targeted by a grenade attack, reported TamilNet on Tuesday.

Nishanthan, who is a former EPDP member, said he escaped the attack as the grenade hit a tree outside the house.

The young politician left the pro-government EPDP after discovering fraud in the municipal council of Jaffna, where he was elected for the EPDP.
