The massive hartal campaign in several towns in the Northern Province, launched by shop owners and other service providers demanding that all Tamil political prisoners be released, is still underway, our reporter said.

He said shops were closed while bus services had come to a standstill and that three-wheel drivers too had stopped operating. The hartal was organsied by the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and several civil society groups.  

Our reporter said a number of schools had been compelled to close because of the hartal.  (Romesh Madhusanka)
