leave a comment »

8 youths have been  arrested by Mannar Police following a clash that took place between Tamil and Muslim youths in Uppukulam, Mannar yesterday. A dispute between two teams playing a cricket match in the area has led to this clash. The Police who were summoned by the locals have arrested some of the youths and now 8 of them (both Muslims and Tamils) are in remand according to sources.

This match had been organized by well wishers to promote amity and goodwill among the two communities. But the purpose is lost on account of this clash which could have been avoided, had both sides restarined themselves, commented an onlooker.

Muslims who were driven out from Mannar in October 1990 by the LTTE along with other Muslims from North have started resettling in small numbers recently. They were in refugee camps in Puttalam and other districts all these years.
