March 18, 2018: On Sunday Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena lifted the nation wide state of emergency after 12 days which was imposed in the country. 


Reportedly, Sirisena signed a gazette notification to lift the emergency which was imposed on March 6 following communal riots in the central regions of the island country.
In a message on his official twitter account, Sirisena said "Upon assessing the public safety situation, I instructed to revoke the State of Emergency from midnight yesterday."
The state of emergency imposed on March 6 was the first since the island ended a 30-year civil conflict between government troops and Tamil Tiger rebels in 2009.
He declared a state of emergency to rein in the spread of communal violence after Buddhists and Muslims clashed in the Indian Ocean Island’s central district of Kandy.
As per reports two people were killed and hundreds of Muslim-owned properties and more than 20 mosques were damaged, media reported. 
It may be stated that the unrest in the district of Kandy was triggered by the death of a Buddhist truck driver, who was reportedly involved in an incident with four Muslims.
