Sri Lanka election: Muslim voters attacked as polls open in shadow of Easter bombings

The Muslim voters were shot at and their path was blocked by burning tyres in the north of the country hours before the presidential polls opened.

Hawzah News Agency - Buses carrying voters in Sri Lanka have been attacked as fears over security continue following a terror attack which killed 269 people earlier this year.

The Muslim voters were shot at and their path was blocked by burning tyres in the north of the country hours before the presidential polls opened, according to the Colombo-based Centre for Monitoring Election Violence.

No injuries were reported and the police are investigating, the group said.

Seven ISIL suicide bombers killed 269 people in three luxury hotels and three churches on Easter Sunday.

Sunday services were cancelled in the weekends following the bombings as it was feared more attacks could take place.
