LTTE and Muslim heads meet in Trinco
In an attempt to defuse tensions that have been rising in the Muttur area of Trincomalee district a delegation from the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) including the political head for the district met with Muslim leaders from the area.
In the past few days five members from both the Tamil and Tamil Speaking Muslim communities have been murdered in tit-for-tat violence.
The meeting was facilitated by the Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission.
In recent days the Sri Lanka Army and government sponsored paramilitaries have been keen to start sectarian violence between Muslim and Tamil communities, so that they can facilitate their pay master’s plans to return to civil war.
