The gathering was held on the sidelines of a summit for the 53 nations in the Commonwealth of Britain and its former territories. The UNP said it was forced to cancel a candlelight vigil Thursday and take down an exhibition of human rights-related photographs, documents and artwork at its headquarters after several hundred pro-government protesters swarmed the building Wednesday and attacked a vehicle carrying the party’s leader.(AP Photo/Eranga Jayawardena)
