Protesters stormed the Sri Lankan prime minister’s private residence and set it on fire, hours after he said he would resign if a new government is formed, in the largest day of angry protests on Saturday, which also saw crowds storm the president’s home and office.
Protesters forced their way into Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s Colombo home on Saturday evening, according to his office.
It was unclear whether he was inside at the time of the attack.
Wickremesinghe previously stated that he will resign only after all parties reach an agreement on a new government.
He was responding to a call from leaders of political parties represented in Parliament for him and President Gotabaya Rajapaksa to resign, after tens of thousands of people had signed a petition.
