Tensions in Batticaloa as Buddhist monks with Sinhala lion flag gather

Tensions prevailed in Batticaloa on Sunday as a mob of Sinhala Buddhist monks from Bodu Bala Sena and Sinhala Ravaya attempted to enter the town despite the local Magistrate prohibiting their presence. 

Carrying the Sinhala lion flag protested against the court's order, resulting in the Special Task Force being deployed to the region.
