Daily Mirror staff photographers Nisal Baduge and Waruna Wanniarachchi who were among those covering the protest, sustained multiple injuries to their heads and arms following being hit by stones and other blunt objects.

Nisal was struck on the head by a stone while Waruna was seriously injured and videos were circulating he was being carried by the bystanders with blood gushing from his head.

Staff photographer Nisal said he was taking photographs of the confrontation when he was hit by a stone. "I managed to take refuge in the garden of a house along Pangiriwatta Road to avoid further injuries,” he said.

Waruna who was assisted by a bystander to call Daily Mirror Editorial last night said he was severely hit on the head and his voice was breaking.

Nisal and Waruna were one of the many who were trapped when the police blocked the road from the Jubilee Post Junction till this edition went to press late last night. (Yohan Perera)

    Violence was instigated by the SLPP thugs who came there and mingled with the protecting crowd lateron. Protested did not have anything than placards in their hands. Even buring the bus was also well planned by the SLPP thugs to disrepute the middle and upper class crowd gathered to voice aganst the corrupt regime.

    Then why didn't the protesters prevent men carrying iron rods and stones among them , where they temporarily blind

    Don’t try to twist the ugliness of these protests by coming up with these kinds of bizarre theories. Have the guts to condone any violence where ever you see them even when you don’t like to accept it.

    Non Violent protests do not aim at the elected leaders house . You have the road and other places to show your frustration.
