Sri Lankan soldiers attack Tamils for allegedly breaking curfew

Sri Lankan soldiers attacked Tamil villagers in the North this week, for allegedly breaking a military enforced curfew in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak on the island.

Armed Sri Lankan soldiers were seen patrolling the villages of Tellippalai, Vasavilan and Palaly this week, with reports that troops have attacked Tamils who they accused of breaking the curfew. Some of the Tamil villagers have been farmers, who depend on the agricultural industry for their livelihood, and have been badly impacted by the curfew.
