A stock of explosives including 10 claymore mines was recovered from a well at a house in Kilinochchi upon a tip-off received by Regiment 57 last evening.
Along with the claymore mines, 66 hand grenades and 42 charges used for mortars have also been discovered.
Hiru News inquired about the matter from the defense secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi.
He told that the explosives have been first seen by a villager as he was cleaning formerly abandoned well in his garden.
However the army said that neither the explosives nor the claymore mines were in a functional condition.
