Special action to guard Buddha statues in Trinco

Special action will be taken to guard Buddha statues in Trincomalee, the Uthayan reports.

The Eastern Province's governor, Austin Fernando, led a special discussion with Buddhist monks from Trinco's viharas, stressing the need to place special protections on the Buddha statues around the district.

The decision comes after unidenitified persons carried out co-ordinated vandal attacks on Buddha statues in four different spots in Trincomalee.
