Sri Lankan court on Thursday banned former Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, his
politician son Namal and 15 allies from leaving the country over acts of violence
against anti-government demonstrators.
The magistrate in the capital Colombo also asked police to investigate Monday's mob attacks on peaceful protesters, which led to retaliatory violence that claimed nine lives and caused widespread destruction.
