Missing Tamil fishermen recovered dead

Two Tamil fishermen who went missing last Friday have been recovered dead.

Mr T.Christeen Koonch (22) and Mr T.Emalton (35), of Thalai Mannar West, did not return home after leaving for the sea last Friday to collect their nets.

A search mission by fellow fishermen the next day turned  out to be futile.

Yesterday, the Sri Lankan police announced that they had recovered the bodies of the two fishermen, washed ashore in Pundkuduthivu, Jaffna.
