SRI LANKA-PRISON-RIOT

Malkanthi Edirisinghe, the wife of a Sri Lankan inmate killed during a prison riot weeps outside the police morgue after an autopsy in Colombo on November 11, 2012. Sri Lanka's main opposition party demanded an independent inquiry into a prison riot that left 27 convicts dead, alleging many were shot by security forces in a cold-blooded 'massacre'. The United National Party (UNP) called for a parliamentary investigation into the riot that erupted on November 9 at the maximum-security Welikada prison in the capital Colombo.
