By Walter Jayawardhana

ABOUT 15 SEA TIGERS KILLED, 3 BOATS DESTROYED OFF MULATHIVU IN THE LTTE DOMINATED AREA

SriLanka navy’s Fast Attack Crafts destroyed three Sea Tiger boats killing at least 15 sea tigers off the coast of the LTTE dominated Multhivu during the afternoon hours of Wednesday, March 28, the Sri lanka Navy said.

A naval spokesman Commander Athula Senaratne said, “"A naval patrol has come across about 10 Tiger boats and our boats launched an attack, and we were able to destroy three rebel craft."

The hours long sea battle came after the security forces have driven off the LTTE from one of their main camps at Kokkadicholai.

The navy said between 15 to 18 Sea Tigers have gone down with the completely destroyed boats.

The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam have complained that about 23 DVORA craft came and attacked them in the area they control.

The Navy said one of their sailors was injured and admitted to the Naval Hospital in Trincomalee.

The Navy spokesman said the battle lasted for four hours. When the Sea Tiger boats moved close to Mulathivu coastal waters the Fast Attack Crafts could not navigate in those waters safely.
