Sri Lanka prime minister resigns, curfew imposed after clashes Updated: 2022-05-10 05:25:31 KST

In Sri Lanka, the nation's prime minister, Mahinda Rajapaksa, resigned on Monday, to make way for a unity government to handle the country's worst economic crisis in history.
The move also came mere hours after clashes broke out in the capital Colombo, where ruling party supporters stormed an anti-government protest camp.
This despite a nationwide curfew and state of emergency that was imposed earlier by the prime minister's younger brother, Sri Lankan president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Reports indicate that five people have died, including a ruling party parliamentarian, while over 190 have been injured.
