Human bones have been found at a site near a hospital in Mullaitivu, the Police said.
The bones were found when the land area in Mankulam, Mullaitivu was being cleared by de-miners.
The land was being cleared for some construction work when fears arose of mines remaining in the area from the war.
A de-mining team began clearing the area when they came across human bones.
The area was cordoned off by the Police and investigations have been launched.
