Sri Lankan President Flees Protestors

Thousands of protesters in Colombo broke through police barricades and stormed President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s official residence in the Sri Lankan capital, demanding he resign and accept responsibility for the island’s gravest economic crisis that has caused thousands of Sri Lankans to live on one meal a day.

Gota is reported to have fled his home on Friday to escape the protesters, some of who were holding Sri Lankan flags.
