Bottles, chilli paste thrown as Sri Lanka parliament descends into farce

COLOMBO - Sri Lanka s parliament descended into chaos for a second day on Friday (Nov 16) as lawmakers supporting newly appointed Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa threw books, chilli paste and water bottles at the speaker to try to disrupt a second no-confidence motion. The vote went ahead anyway and for a second time lawmakers gave Rajapaksa and his new government the thumbs down, potentially strengthening the hand of Wickremesinghe, who is seeking to return as prime minister.
