Lanka crisis: 1 dead after ex-minister's guards open fire

Oct 28, 2018 19:34 IST

One person died and three others were injured in Sri Lanka after bodyguards of parliamentarian Arjuna Ranatunga opened fire on a mob loyal to Lankan President Sirisena, after they tried to take him hostage. Ranatunga was the petroleum minister under sacked prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who has refused to vacate the prime minister’s official residence. The police will now seek a court order to evict him.
