Sri Lankan ruling party supporters Thursday morning attacked activists of the Sinhala nationalist Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) while they were participating in a party propaganda show held in Beliatta town in support of the opposition common candidate General (retd) Sarath Fonseka.

Seven JVP activists were injured and admitted at the Tangalle government hospital, police sources said.

This was the first election related violence reported from the southern province soon after the nominations were closed Thursday for the forthcoming presidential election.
