Nov 29, Colombo: University students of Sri Lanka today protested Wednesday's clashes between the students of the Jaffna University in northern Sri Lanka and the security forces while the students at the Jaffna University boycotted classes in protest.

Students affiliated with the Inter University Students' Federation (IUSF) of Ruhuna University in Matara and Peradeniya University in Kandy staged protests against the alleged attacks by the security forces during the clash.

More protests will be held tomorrow at other universities, the student union said.

The security forces and police clashed with Jaffna University students who were commemorating the birthday of the slain Tamil Tiger terrorist leader of LTTE V. Prabhakaran and the other dead terrorists in an event called Heroes Day.

The Army said they had to restrain the students who were throwing stones at the security forces.

A teacher's union in Sri Lanka, the Ceylon Teachers' Union condemned the attack on the students and said the police had attacked a peaceful protest.
