Sri Lanka's president Maithripala Sirisena took his son to the UN General Assembly on Friday, despite being elected on a pledge to break away from the nepotism of the previous Rajapaksa regime.

His son, Daham Sirisena, sat with the official government delegation at Sri Lanka's desk, and later accompanied the delegation to Mr Sirisena's meeting with the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi.
