At least 10 people were injured, 4 critically, following a clash between two groups in Deniyaya, Matara late this evening. The clash erupted after one group began hurling abuse at another man.


The ensuing clash saw both sides use swords and poles to attack each other. The police riot squad had to intervene and bring the situation under control. The injured, including 4 women, were admitted to the Matara and Deniyaya hospital for treatment. Police investigations into the clash are now underway. (Daily Mirror online)

    Not Ministers and MPs ... they are too smart! But their idiotic followers and goons will do it, and we fools will still vote for them.

    more petty clashes of this nature could be expected in the coming days due to prevailing intense heat followed by the dry spell of weather; going by a recent news report.

    Seriously what is wrong with our great country . From the president to the common man violence is used to take revenge from other fellow country men.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 05:58 PM

    This 'rot' has started from the very top, with violent reactions being 'the order of the day'! See the level we have come-down to! Pathetic indeed!

    SOON YOU WILL ALSO SEE MINISTERS AND MPS, FIGHTING LIKE THESE GUYS! THIS IS A TRAINING LESSON.

    Who made this Sri Lankan society act like wild animals in the jungle, fighting with each other & killing each other? Politicians, in politics!

    Can anything good come from the Dept. of Police? Now, it is rendering henchman service than Police duty.

    Where has teaching of Buddhism gone?going to the temple alone does not make a peaceful society,it all happens when monks also go to politics.

    Monday, 01 March 2010 06:32 PM

    More riots could be expected before the election ...

    Tuesday, 02 March 2010 07:49 AM

    This is the right sri lanka,,, if they change their attitude they would have called swise nationals,,, keep it up as sri lankans ,,,,,

    Monday, 01 March 2010 06:35 PM

    ... Well, there is a limit to tolerance!

    Tuesday, 02 March 2010 07:56 AM

    For some people, this is the first time such a clash occurred in this country and they have eagerly connected it with politics.

    These are the people who wait for some mayhem to happen.

    Must be a 'cricket match,' now that Sana boy is 'in the scene,' in Matara ...

    Al Capone said this: "I find I can get more done with a kind word and a gun, than with a kind word alone." Right now, this is how politics works in SL. Thuggery is more effective in collecting votes than kind words, eloquence or brains.
