A nationwide curfew was imposed in Sri Lanka on Monday after government supporters clashed with demonstrators demanding the resignation of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in the capital Colombo.

At least 20 people were injured, officials said. Rajapaksa loyalists armed with sticks and clubs attacked unarmed protesters camping outside the president's office since April 9, AFP reporters said.
