Sri Lanka Security Forces Clear Main Protest Camp in Colombo

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka—Sri Lanka security forces raided the main anti-government protest camp in Colombo in the early hours of Friday, destroying tents and removing activists from the premises of the President’s office, within a day of the presidency Ranil Wickremesinghe to be sworn.

The military and police entered the camp around 1:30 a.m. local time and forced people to leave the presidential secretariat, which thousands of protesters had occupied earlier this month, according to protesters and a soldier involved in the operation. Organizers of the protests had previously announced that the few dozen people remaining planned to vacate the building on Friday afternoon after Mr Wickremesinghe was due to swear in a new prime minister.
