Security tightened over reports of Jaffna residents fleeing Featured

Security forces have tightened security on the A-9 road and in the Mullaitivu area after reports cited that civilians confined to the Jaffna area due to curfew have been fleeing to areas in Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu and Mannar through jungle and coastal roads.

The military and police have set up roadblocks in those areas and deployed several patrol vehicles, sources say.

Meanwhile, a group of people were arrested yesterday (06) for violating curfew and arriving at the Jaffna town, claiming they did not have food to eat.
