Tue, Jun 17, 2014, 12:44 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 17, Colombo: Following the weekend communal clashes between the Sinhalese and the Muslims in the southern coastal resort towns in Sri Lanka, Australia has advised its citizens visiting Sri Lanka to exercise high degree of caution.

"We advise you to exercise a high degree of caution in Sri Lanka at this time because of the unpredictable security environment," the Advice issued by the Australian government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade on Monday, 16 June 2014 says.

Informing that a night curfew has been imposed in Aluthgama and Beruwala following civil unrest, the travel advisory asks the visitors to respect the curfew and follow the instructions of local authorities.

It further instructs to avoid all demonstrations and large public gatherings as they may turn violent or be a target for politically-motivated attacks. Police have used tear gas in response to protests, the advisory notes.
