LTTE terrorists abandon their chief's son; body found
Sri Lanka Army special forces soldiers have found a body suspected to be of Charles Anthony, the elder son of LTTE chief V. Prabhakaran in the Karayamullavaikkal area this morning (May 18).
According to the defence sources in the battlefront, the body was found after an unsuccessful and half-hearted attempt by the LTTE cadres to evacuate their leader's son early this morning.
Charles Anthony was known to be the head of Information and Technology department of the LTTE. It is said that the LTTE leader was compelled to recruit his son to the outfit to avoid criticism over his hypocrisy. The LTTE leader was often criticised for sending thousands of child soldiers to war while giving a luxurious life and best of education to his own children. Charles Anthony was given a very senior position in the outfit after establishing a special non-fighting unit for him.
According to latest battlefield reports received, Army elites are now continuing the final mop-up operations at the last 100m x100m LTTE foothold, North of Vellamullivaikkal.
