Anti-Muslim Assaults In Ampara: Police On Alert To Prevent Sinhala-Muslim Clashes

Ampara is currently facing a heavily tense situation with impending riots by Sinhalese mobs against Muslims.

Reports from the ground indicate that there is a riot building up currently after a drunken Sinhalese group of youth had entered Hotel Cassim located in D S Senanayaka Veediya, Ampara and forced the cashier to admit that they were mixing sterilising medicine with food they sell.

Last night, a mosque, several Hotels and vehicles belonging to Muslims in Ampara have been attacked by Sinhala mobs leading to major tensions.

Police have been mobilized.

A video clip posted on Facebook by Buddhist Information Centre shows the muslim cashier was forced to accept that they mixed sterilising medicine with food they sell.
