Thu, Jan 9, 2014, 01:01 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 09, Colombo: A protest staged by a group in front of the United States Embassy in Colpetty has created a massive traffic congestion on the Galle Road.

A group called Federation of National Organizations staged a protest march against the visit of the U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues in the office of Global Criminal Justice Stephen J. Rapp.

Activists holding placards and shouting slogans blocked the traffic on the main road towards Fort.

According to the police the road from Colpetty Junction to Galle Face Roundabout was closed and traffic was limited to one lane. The motorists were advised to use alternate routes.

Rapp, who visited Jaffna and met Tamil National Alliance leaders Wednesday, has said that U.S. is planning to table third resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council session in March in Geneva calling for an international probe into allegations of war crime.
