Classes Disrupted In Jaffna University

Jaffna University has experienced an increase in violence and attendance at lectures has been affected. The university was temporarily closed last December after Tamil students and academics from the university clashed with the Sri Lankan Army when it tried to prevent an LTTE inspired student procession. Officials say the biggest impediment to academic work is the poor attendance from students who come from far off places. People are wary of renting out rooms to young boys as they also fall into trouble when these boys are suspected of involvement in subversive activities, one academic said. Worse could well come, especially if the low-intensity conflict escalates into a full-scale war, with LTTE bent on wrestling control over Jaffna.
