Claymore attack begins again in Jaffna: failure of Solheim's

[b]Claymore attack begins again in Jaffna: failure of Solheim's policy of appeasement[/b]

[b]Colombo, 11 April, (Asiantribune.com): [/b]LTTE has begun to detonate its second round of explosives this year in Jaffna despite its agreement in Geneva in February not to violate the Ceasefire Agreement brokered by Erik Solheim, the LTTE-friendly "facilitator".

This place in jeopardy the second round of talks scheduled to be held in Geneva on April 19 -21. Political observers believe that Solheim's policies of siding with the LTTE to appease them have failed once again. President Mahinda Rajapakse was commended by the international community for acting with great restraint without retaliating in January when the LTTE detonated its first round of explosives killing soldiers and civilians.

The latest in the series was the claymore mine explosion in Mirisuvil in the Jaffna peninsula where 5 Sri Lankan soldiers, and two civilians involved in the Tsunami relief work in the peninsula were killed.
