Bodies of three drowned youths found
The bodies of three youths have been recovered after they had been swept away by rough seas and drowned while bathing off Mullaitivu, police say.
The trio, in their mid-twenties, had been on a trip to the area, and had gone to have a sea bath yesterday afternoon.
One of the youth’s body was found later on the day, while the other two were retrieved this morning.
The three bodies are now lying at the Mullaitivu General Hospital for the postmortem examinations.
