Sri Lankan paramilitaries stone TNPF supporters

TNPF supporters have been stoned in Jaffna by Sri Lankan paramilitaries.

The incident took place today evening in Maruthadi, where TNPF supporters were holding a public meeting.

Witnesses told the Tamil Polity that the attack was carried out by operatives of the EPDP, a Sri Lankan paramilitary group, who came on auto rickshaws.

A few hours earlier, unidentified men, also alleged to be EPDP operatives, entered the site and cut down the sound wires installed there.
