Petrol bomb attack on Muslim restaurant in Puttalam

A Muslim restaurant in Puttalam was attacked with a petrol bomb this weekend, just days after anti-Muslim violence erupted in Kandy, reports The Island.

The restaurant in Anamaduwa saw a group on motorcycles hurl a petrol bomb at it, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The police said they suspect the attack was “racially motivated”.

A group of seven suspects have since been arrested by the Sri Lankan police after CCTV footage captured the attack.
