Security forces have begun search operations in the Eastern Province in search of LTTE cadres who are suspected to have returned to the country, illegal weapons and other armed gangs hiding in the area, military sources said today.
He said the army and police launched a search operation in and around Trincomalee-Anuradhapura junction and Anbuwelipuram in Trincomalee.
