One person was killed and two others injured in a landmine explosion in uncleared minefield in Muhamalai, Jaffna, this afternoon, sources said.
The victims are reported to have been traveling on a tractor into the minefield disregarding the warning signs to cut firewood when the landmine exploded.
The body of the victim is currently at the Palai hospital and the two 17-year-old boys are treated at the Kilinochchi Base Hospital, they said.

It was well expected after the election defeat to warn the "Democratic Heroes" while the so called "War Heroes" are standing at every 50m all over the N&E and guarding their motherland - Is it the beginning of another humanitarian operation?

Its a simple case of ignoring warning signs....don't make it sound like a Army vs civilians conspiracy.
