Police Announce Countrywide Curfew From 9 PM Today To 4 AM Tomorrow To Diffuse Unrest

A country-wide curfew has been imposed from 9 PM today to 4 AM tomorrow to diffuse any potential unrest, the Police said.

The decision came approximately a half and hour after the police announced a curfew in the Gampaha police division following a tense situation.

Previously, the police announced a curfew in the North Western province after several groups behaved in an unruly manner causing damage to mosques and Muslim-owned businesses.
