part of the on-going military operations, telephone links with
Kilinochchi, the headquarters of the LTTE, have been cut.
The town is currently without electricity too.

adversely affected news gathering by media organisations based
in Colombo and Jaffna.
In Jaffna, fixed lines are still working, but
mobile phones are dead.
