Unidentified persons Saturday night set fire to an illegal pavement shop set up buy Sinhalese traders from South in Naachchimaar Koayiladi in Jaffna, sources in Jaffna said. Friday night a local shop in this area had been burnt down. Conflicts and disputes between local traders and the Southern Sinhalese and Muslim traders who continue to pour into Jaffna after the opening of A9 road are on the increase with each day and Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) is reluctant to evict these traders who encroach the streets of Jaffna, the sources added.

Some Sinhalese traders had set up the pavement shop in Naachchimaar Koayiladi some days ago.
