Lanka refugees spill over to TN

As many as 18 refugees from Sri Lanka have arrived at Arichalmunai near Dhanushkodi, complaining scarcity of food and other essential commodities, including medicine, in strife-torn Jaffna.

The refugees, belonging to seven families, including seven men, six women and children, arrived in Tamil Nadu after paying Rs 5,000 per head as ferry charge.

They said a pitched battle was going on in Sri Lanka and though many were willing to flee the country, the Navy was preventing them.
