Swiss police have shot and killed a Sri Lankan asylum seeker near a refugee center in the Swiss canton of Ticino after he threatened fellow refugees with two knives, foreign media reported.

Police was alerted to a brawl involving several asylum seekers in the town of Brissago on Saturday afternoon.

Upon intervening, officers escorted two asylum seekers into the building where they were rushed at by a 38-year-old man brandishing two knives.

The incident resulted in police firing at the attacker and fatally injuring him.

The Swiss prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation into the conduct of the officer responsible for the man’s death.

The refugee center, situated near a town hall, is said to have been housing dozens of Sri Lankan asylum seekers for several years.

    Indian created Tamil militant groups LTTE, EPRLF, EPDP, TELO,and PLOT are responsible for destroying the Tamil social fabric and the Tamil culture and we are seeing the results even in the far away places.

    Really? So all other non Tamil Lankans are saints, yes? Don't talk like an ignorant. This guy is a mentally imbalanced as he lost his whole family in the cruel war.
