Police in Sri Lanka have fired tear gas and water cannons to disperse thousands of protesters in the center of the capital protesting higher fuel prices.
A wave of protests has swept across Sri Lanka since the government increased fuel prices a week ago because of rising world oil prices. A liter of gasoline rose 10 cents to $1.25 and diesel went up 26 cents.
On Friday, opposition lawmakers and protesters gathered opposite the main train station in Colombo. They shouted slogans slamming the increase in fuel prices and the police fire killing of a fisherman in a protest earlier this week.
As the protesters started marching toward the city center, police fired tear gas and water cannons.
