Colombo - Ten people have been wounded after unidentified attackers lobbed grenades at polling booths in the volatile northeast of Sri Lanka.

The Thursday attack ripped through a booth at Chenkaladi, in the district of Batticaloa, wounding two women and five men.

Police said three people were also wounded in a grenade attack outside another polling station in the same district. The district witnessed heavy fighting between the government and Tamil rebels before a February 2002 truce.

Two people were killed and five were wounded in another explosion inside a home. Police said they could not immeditely link the explosion to the presidential elections.

Seven people were killed in the eastern province on the eve of the election, despite a high state of alert for police and troops.

However, police reported the rest of the couintry was largely peaceful.

About 60 000 people were killed in the island's embattled northern and eastern regions between 1972 and 2002 before the civial war truce went into effect.

Despite the truce, over 190 people were killed in the same areas this year alone, according to the Scandinavian truce monitoring team.

Election officials said voter turnout in the Tamil-dominated northeast was low.

Venezuela on maximum alert: explosions at several points in Caracas...

President Hugo Chavez FriasPrensa Latina: Following President Hugo Chavez' advice to "have nerves of steel, stand on our own two feet, have faith in ourselves, and fortify our feeling of love, affection and fraternity," Venezuelans ready for Sunday's congressional elections.



The President warned against a US maneuver to destabilize the elections and said the National Armed Forces and the people are on the alert before tomorrow's vote to choose 167 deputies for the National Assembly, 12 for the Latin American Parliament, and 5 for the Andean Parliament.

The election occurs amid a campaign in which six opposition parties withdrew (1.33% of the total) and several explosive devices were detonated at several points in Caracas.

Three people were injured Friday from explosions near the Republic Attorney General's and the Fort Tiuna 3rd Division of the National Armed Forces. At the same time, three explosive devices were detected close to Central University (UCV) and the offices of the National Electoral Council (CNE).

Authorities reported the arrest of 11 people in Ojeda, in western Zulia, and the confiscation of 55 Molotov cocktails, 31 containers of combustibles, 40 cell phones, and other items.

The members of the group, who had National Armed Forces identification cards, were accused of shutting down communication lines, damaging gas pipelines and public services.
