Sri Lanka imposes curfew after anti Muslim riots

AFP

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka imposed a curfew yesterday in a central hill station town popular with tourists after days of communal unrest that saw a man killed and Muslim businesses set alight, reports AFP.

Police said there had been riots and arson attacks since the weekend in Kandy, home to tea plantations and Buddhist relics.

“The curfew was imposed to control the situation in the area,” said police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera.

The violence has worsened since a man from the island’s mainly Buddhist Sinhalese majority died at the weekend from injuries sustained during a riot last week.
