Sirisena’s visit to Jaffna marred by protests

Catholics lined the streets of Ilavalai, Jaffna, on Monday protesting against the visiting Sri Lankan president.

Mr Maithripala Sirisena made a visit to Ilavalai to declare open a newly built science lab at a high school in the area.


Protesters urged the visiting president to reveal the fate of thousands of Tamils, including two eminent Catholic priests, made to disappear by the Sri Lankan security forces in the past.
