Sri Lankan Protesters Swim In President’s Pool After Storming His Home

After invading the president’s home, demonstrators from Sri Lanka splash in the pool

During an anti-government march this morning, thousands of demonstrators in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s commercial metropolis, attacked President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s official house.

The 22 million-person island is experiencing a severe foreign exchange shortage that has restricted the importation of basic goods like food, fuel, and medication, throwing the economy into the greatest financial instability it has experienced in seven decades.

After assaulting the president’s home, a large number of demonstrators leap into his pool while others prowl the balcony above.

On Friday, July 8, Rajapaksa is thought to have been relocated from the official house due to safety concerns.
