Abortive Tiger air raid on Kelanitissa

COLOMBO:The air defence system in Colombo and suburbs was activated last night and the electricity supply to the city was suspended as a precautionary measure after a suspected Tiger aircraft dropped two bombs targeting the Kelanitissa power station.

According to Army spokesman Brigadier Udaya Nanayakkara the blast caused a minor fire at the power station. Firefighters have managed to douse the fire. The electricity generation capacity will not be affected, CEB sources said.

No injuries were reported at Kelanitissa. Prior to this incident, an LTTE light aircraft dropped three bombs on the Mannar Army headquarters in Thaladdi.

Brigadier Nanayakkara said no damage was caused to the camp or any other military logistics facility in the area due to this attack.
