A 14 year-old school boy was injured due to a blast believed to have occurred from an anti personnel mine on the Chalai-Chundikulam lagoon in Mullaitivu Saturday evening, Military spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasuriya said.

The child had sustained injuries to one leg and was admitted to the Kilinochchi Hospital. According to the Army, the victim had come about 2km from his house to the lagoon to catch crabs.

They believe that an anti personnel mine which was laid on the bank may have washed to the lagoon due to rain.( Supun Dias)

    And this is why the re-settlement is taking longer and which the interfering Int'l community does not understand. Time is required to make the areas 100% mine-free else we can look forward to more similar incidents
