Aussies warned against travelling to Sri Lanka weeks out from cricket tour

Just weeks before the Australian cricket team arrives in Sri Lanka, the federal government has warned Aussies to reconsider travelling to the country following “several violent incidents”.

But a spokesperson told News Corp that Cricket Australia’s plans had not yet been affected, despite violent protests occurring less than an hour from the city where the tour will begin.

Economic decline in Sri Lanka has led protesters to clash with government supporters for weeks, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and his brother, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

The situation escalated this week despite the Prime Minister’s resignation and following two nights of arson attacks near the capital city Colombo, Australia updated its travel advice for those wishing to visit.
