More than 600 demonstrators were arrested in Sri Lanka's Western Province for violating a countrywide curfew of 36 hours, news agency PTI reported. They were planning an anti-government demonstration against the country's worst economic crisis in decades. On Sunday, opposition parliamentarians marched to Colombo's historic Independence Square, defying the government's weekend curfew, which was imposed on Saturday.
