More Muslims attacked by Buddhist mobs as violence continues in Sri Lanka – Associated Press

Sinhala Buddhist mobs have continued a wave of anti-Muslim violence in Sri Lanka, despite a massive security presence, a state of emergency and curfew imposed by the state, reports the Associated Press.

Mobs were still running through Muslim neighbourhoods in Kandy on Wednesday evening, according to reports.

One Muslim man described a gang of 50 people breaking into his small restaurant in Pilimathalawa and destroying the property. Similar attacks have reportedly taken place.
