Sinhala Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka rally in support of Myanmar

Sinhala Buddhist monks staged a rally in Colombo yesterday in support of Myanmar’s military offensive in the Rakhine state, which has displaced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims.

Monks marched through the southern capital with a banner stating “all Sri Lankans” were with the Burmese government.

The banner went on to state that “most of terrorists are Muslims” (sic).
