Drench warfare


PROTESTERS stormed Sri Lanka President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s home yesterday – and leapt into his pool.

Thousands got past barricades, blaming Rajapaksa and PM Ranil Wickremesi­nghe for a crippling economic crisis.

The president had been moved to safety – while Wickremesi­nghe’s home was torched. He has agreed to stand down.

Police fired tear gas in the capital Colombo and the clashes left at least 21 people in hospital.
