Thu, Nov 8, 2018, 01:35 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Nov 08, Colombo: The U.S. Embassy in Colombo issued a security alert advising U.S. citizens that a vehicle procession traveling from Galle Face Green to Parliament beginning at 12:00 noon today will likely result in heavy traffic along the route and possible road closures.

The Embassy reminded citizens that even events intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. "You should avoid areas of demonstrations and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations," it said.

The procession organized by the United National Party to protest against the undemocratic and unconstitutional political decisions taken by the President will be held in Colombo this afternoon.

The motorcade is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm from Galle Face Green.
