The town of Weliweriya resembled a war zone today as buffle vehicles and army personnel patrolled along the roads that were tattered following yesterday’s violent clash between the military and the villagers. The clash resulted in the death of a 17 year-old school boy and injured dozens of others. Pix by Kushan Pathiraja

    Its very sad...that the Army had converted a peaceful rally to a WAR Zone....those are the people who prayed for them & made the as national heroes , ironically they went in to the same church & attacked them.

    WAKE UP people....! these are just innocent villages just asked for clean water.

    Paul Friday, 02 August 2013 12:30 PM

    sahdi Friday, 02 August 2013 12:31 PM

    IF YOU ALL VOTED TO THESE THIEVES YOU ALL SHOULD DESERVE IT....

    Sujee Friday, 02 August 2013 12:32 PM

    Shame.. shame.. a national shame!!! Clean water is a Human Right..! We saw how the security forces started firing at a peaceful protest.. This is a shame! With theses idiotic acts, the Government going down, and down every day!

    Yoosuf Friday, 02 August 2013 05:03 PM

    as expected, won the war, by winning the crowd of southern, and try to stay in power by creating yet another war with civilians

    I am seeing the Gaddafi/Hased Al Basher and Hosni Mubarak kind of ruling right now, everything to keep the power within?

    RJoseph Friday, 02 August 2013 12:35 PM

    Ahh the leader shows his might to a 17yr old kid how pathetic..lol and he has the nerve to invites the pope like a sudana..lol...

    Namal Perera Friday, 02 August 2013 12:55 PM

    Citizens request for drinking water and the corrupt Regime reply with Guns deploying the Army. This is corrupt, lawless Banana Republic and hard to believe this is former democratic Sri Lanka.

    shan Friday, 02 August 2013 12:55 PM

    Its only a start

    limatc Friday, 02 August 2013 05:14 PM

    THE RESULT WHAT IS BEEN RECEIVED IS WHAT THOSE WHO SENT TO THE BANK AS THEIR DEPOSITS , NOW IT IS VERY CLEAR TO SRI LANKA AND TO THE WHOLE WORLD , THOSE WHO LEGALLY WIN WILL NEVER DO THIS TYPE OF TYRANNY ACT , IT IS THE PUBLIC LIKE US TO BE BLAMED , NO OTHERS TO BLAME , WHEN WE WILL LEARN A LESSON WHOM TO ELECT TO RULE OVER US , IF WE ARE BAD THEN GOD ALMIGHTY WILL SEND UPON US TYRANNY RULERS TO RULE OVER US .

    MagodisThuma Friday, 02 August 2013 01:00 PM

    If you cant drink Water... Try Wine !

    Kaslana Friday, 02 August 2013 05:50 PM

    I don't know why some people keep blaming the voters when the voters have lost their democratic right through tyranny and their votes are stolen by those who rig elections to win at whatever cost. Sri Lanka is no worse a banana republic than Zimbabwe.

    ballo Friday, 02 August 2013 01:10 PM

    get to streets entire country to change this CORRUPT REGIME

    tamilan Friday, 02 August 2013 06:08 PM

    If these animals can treat their own people like this. What can people in North- East can expect from them ?.

    DInu Friday, 02 August 2013 01:18 PM

    Mr Gota dont blame people educate Police and forces not to kill people when they protest, its a basic right. Police should have used tear gas.if they really wanted to control situation. Its very sad of Sri Lanka's democracy.

    Ranjan Friday, 02 August 2013 01:20 PM

    Guns N Roses @ Weliveriya ...., keep it goin, Mahinda Chinthana....,

    Saman Friday, 02 August 2013 01:24 PM

    Sad day for Sri Lanka. All issues should be solved through Amicably and not through violance.

    We need to see who and where the main responsibility comes from and deal with it.'
    Guess , like in any company, the Boss needs to be held responsible , at times like this.

    lankaputha Friday, 02 August 2013 01:50 PM

    When they asked for clean water the government gave them red hot bulets and red blood. A pathetic start from the new Army Commander.

    RajasH Friday, 02 August 2013 02:00 PM

    kumari Friday, 02 August 2013 02:13 PM
