A fight has erupted at a Hindu temple festival in Oslo. The injured have been admitted to Ullevål hospital in Oslo.

    You can change the jungle, but tiger remains a tiger. Hope Norwegians will learn their lesson harboring terrorists.

    It is an INSULT to refer to these type of people as Sri Lankan. They do not deserve to have such a valued nationality behind them.

    There are a number of Sri Lankans who are doing well overseas and these types of people only tarnish the image of well respected Sri Lankan with their selfish attitude.
