Sri Lankan court bans journalists from photographing Mannar mass grave

A Sri Lankan court announced its decision to impose a ban on all journalists taking photographs at the mass grave site in Mannar.

The court reportedly said that the ban on journalists is to prevent disruption of the excavation work.

The mass grave is currently being excavated with more than 80 bodies having been discovered there already, including that of young children. An archaeologist at the site said some of the skeletons found had “deep and unusual” lacerations on their bones.
