Are the engagements reported here ( and here ( ), connected?

The engagement may simply be an exercise in misdirection.

I would advocate SL Navy to inspect this ship thoroughly before being brought into the Galle Harbour.

If LTTE wanted, they could have booby trapped a ship like this and explode it using a mobile or sat phone.

i.e will say it is an LTTE gun running ship.. they may attach a detonator/bomb to a Phone and hide among the other explosives, just in case if the vessel was captured to detonate it.

BTW, has the Navy has confirmed itself where this ship was heading, its authenticity, type of cargo it carried etc, before they release the crew to the Indunisian embassy?
