Sri Lanka is experiencing a devastating financial and economic crisis. The island nation is so indebted that it can no longer import important commodities such as food, medicine, fuel and gas in large quantities. Police and armed soldiers are currently guarding the gas stations. Resentment among the population is enormous.

On Wednesday, doctors and bankers took to the streets and marched in protest, calling on the government to find a quick solution. Recently, violent unrest claimed several lives and injured hundreds. Crime in the island nation has been on the rise for weeks.
