The monks sought Indian central government’s intervention to stop assaults against Sri Lankan pilgrims as ties between the two nations remained tense over alleged rights violations of minority Tamils by Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese-dominated government. Tamils in south India share close cultural and religious links with their counterparts in Sri Lanka. AFP PHOTO/ Ishara S.KODIKARA (Photo credit should read Ishara S.KODIKARA/AFP/Getty Images)
