Sri Lankan army harass onlookers as Sinhala students clash outside Jaffna Uni

Sri Lankan soldiers stationed at the University of Jaffna stood by as Sinhalese students clashed outside the campus on Wednesday, instead harassing passers-by and onlookers.

The soldiers forced onlookers away from the incident and berated individuals who had filmed the clashes, forcing them to delete all photographs and videos.

The University’s administration said that since the clash had happened outside the campus, no disciplinary action would be taken, but that Koppay police had been informed.
