Army and security forces are on the streets of Columbo amid the Sri Lankan economic crisis.

Protesters have so far taken over the Presidential palace, the PM’s office, the PM’s house, and the state broadcaster. Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa called the government’s actions thus far “total anarchy“.

The Sri Lankan economic crisis is escalating by the minute with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa refusing to step down. He appointed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe the acting President after he fled to Male, Maldives, with his wife and two staffers on Wednesday, infuriating protesters further.
