US envoy Michele Sison warns Sri Lanka over anti-Muslim events
A United States diplomat has expressed alarm at a rising anti-Muslim campaign in Sri Lanka and warned that such sentiments should not be allowed to fester.
U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka Michele Sison spoke Monday to foreign correspondents based in Colombo. The comments follow months of hate speeches, vilification and even attacks on Muslim-owned businesses and places of worship by Sinhalese-Buddhist nationalist groups.
