Nov 11, Colombo: Activists of Sri Lanka's Marxist party Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) have clashed with the activists of its splinter group Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) yesterday while both groups were preparing to commemorate their late leader.

The police had arrested politburo member of the FSP Udul Premaratne, a lawyer by profession, and two activists of the JVP following the clash.

A clash had broken out at Pepiliyana junction in the outskirts of Colombo as a group of FSP activists were pasting propaganda posters for the party commemoration of the 'November Heroes'.

According to the complaint lodged by the FSP in Boralesgamuwa police station one of their members was injured in the brawl.
