LTTE meets mosque leaders in Trincomalee

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) military head for Trincomalee Col. Sonaram, held a meeting with the mosque leaders in Trincomalee today.

The meeting was intended to calm the rise in tensions and violence between the Tamil speaking Muslim, Hindu and Christian communities.

The meeting is said to have been useful in clearing all misunderstandings between followers of the various faiths. Further both sides had agreed to work together to fight against the forces who are trying to separate the Tamil speaking people on the basis of religion.

In recent months the Karuna Group had been ordered by the Sri Lanka Army Intelligence to carry out violent attacks against Muslim civilians, said two Karuna Group members who surrendered to the LTTE last week.

The LTTE is a secular organisation.
