[b]Karuna's deep penetration operations alerts Prabhakaran[/b]

[b] Colombo, 29 April, ([/b] Commando forces of the TamilEala Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal (TMVP) have so far carried out four deep penetration missions into the Vanni Tigers' stronghold, according to informed sources. It is learnt that the Deep Penetrating forces of TMVP operates from Vavuniya - Mannar border area.

This is the most feared group by the LTTE. Alerted by the unexpected attacks the Tigers have increased the security of Velupillai Prabhakaran hiding in the Vanni.

He is normally guarded by a battalion of 300 armed guards. He has cut down his public engagements. Recently, he insisted on attending an "Arangetram" in the Vanni and to protect his security the Tigers insisted that the invitations be limited to a few. As a result the parents could not invite all their friends and relatives. It was reduced to about twenty invitees who were screened carefully before being admitted to the dance performance.

On days that he travels all roads to the destination are kept sealed off for the general public for at least 24 hours. He seldom appears in public fearing that it would provide an opportunity to target him.
