An Opposition protest was attacked by an armed gang last night.

The protesters were en route to Welikada to demand the release of former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka. However the armed group attacked at Punchi Borella, injuring several people and smashing the windows and windscreens of vehicles. UNP Deputy Leader Karu Jayasuriya who was at the protest was hurriedly ushered into his vehicle by supporters to avoid being injured.
