A curfew is in place in part of the Sri Lankans capital, Colombo, following clashes between Buddhists and Muslims.

Several houses were damaged in the attacks on Sunday evening.

The violence followed an attack on a mosque in the Grandpass area by a Buddhist mob, which left at least five people injured.
