An unexploded bomb, believed to have fallen off from the LTTE aircraft shot down in 2009 by Sri Lanka Air Force at Katunayake, was found in a swamp close to the SLAF Camp yesterday.

Air Force Spokesman Gehan Senaviratne said Road Development Authority (RDA) employees had discovered the bomb while carrying out road construction work in the area.  

“The bomb was inside a plastic barrel in the swamp some 50 metres away from the location where the LTTE aircraft was shot down. We have secured the area and SLAF bomb disposal unit will soon defuse the bomb,” Wing Commander Senaviratne said.  

On February 20, 2009 the LTTE launched an attack on the SLAF Camp at Katunayake adjoining the Bandaranaike International Airport.

The plane was shot down by anti-aircraft fire. The plane was found intact with the body of the pilot and explosives inside. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Only Mahinda is concerned about the LTTE and it shows that he has some crooked plans to keep RW contesting for the Premiers Position.

    Weerawansa is behind this issue. If you arrest him right now, truth can come out. Crooks plans something to disturb the public.
