The United States has called for a peaceful election in Sri Lanka and expressed deep concern by the escalating violence surrounding the upcoming polls, particularly over reports of today’s fatal shooting in Tangalle. 
 

The US Embassy in Colombo, in a statement, urged the appropriate authorities to conduct a full investigation on today’s incident and other acts of violence and to protect those exercising their democratic right to support the candidate of their choice.  
 

“This is the first nation-wide election in a peaceful, united Sri Lanka in several decades.  We hope that the election is conducted freely, fairly and without violence,” the US Embassy statement said.

    We live in a borderless world! All that the US did was to request civilised beheviour, during this election, as we have already witnessed an unnecessary death. There is nothing to get worked-up about. In fact, we should be ashamed of this uncivilised act.

    Now we will hear that the "US is conspiring to topple the government"!

    Anton: I hope you haven't forgotten how our so-called "friendly countries," including both US & Europe, tried 'tooth & nail' to stop the war and 'give oxygen' to the LTTE, to fight another day!
