Forty one people have been arrested in the aftermath of the violence which prevailed at Aluthgama and Beruwala. Police said some of those arrested had violated the curfew imposed in the two troubled spots.

They said a mob had set fire to a house and a shop at Welipenna this morning and that a special investigation had been launched to arrest the miscreants.

The Special Task Force (STF) was deployed at Mathugama to bring the situation under control.

The Ministry of Defence and Urban Development said the Army was deployed at Aluthgama, Welipenna, Dharga Town, Beruwala and Maggona with the military carrying out mobile patrolling on the request of the police.(Supun Dias)

    How about the policemen (Traffic) who were watching the incident during the curfew & didn't take any actions. This seen was recorded in a CCTV (15th night 23.20).
