High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Chencholai bombing is a
disputed event in the Sri Lankan Civil War. It took place on August
14, 2006 when the Sri Lankan Air Force bombed what they claimed to
be a rebel LTTE training camp killing at least 61 children between
the ages of 16 and 18, all of them girls. The LTTE, UNICEF, SLMM
and UTHR all claimed those in the compound were not LTTE cadres.
Sri Lankan army stated it considered the children as LTTE
combatants and hence a legitimate target. On September 1, Sri
Lankan police said they arrested three young women -aged 18, 19 and
20 - whom they said were injured in the airstrike and were
subsequently brought to a hospital in central Sri Lanka for
treatment. Inspector General of Police Chandra Fernando said the
three young women all claimed that they were taken by a member of
the Tamil Tigers to a camp deep within rebel territory for first
aid training but when they reached the camp, they were forced to
undergo weapons training.
