Explosion in Mullivaikal – houses damaged

Several houses have been damaged in an explosion in Mullivaikal, Mullaithivu, the last bastion of the LTTE and the scene of heavy fighting in May 2009.

The explosion occurred last night.

Sri Lanka police officers have claimed that the explosion occurred after a man set fire to a rubbish dump, presumably covering an unexploded rocket propelled grenade fired during the war.
