Protest over probe

, March 26, 2014

A man, carrying depictions of US President Barack Obama, protests against the UN and US resolution against Sri Lankan war crimes, during a demonstration march towards the US embassy  in Colombo on March 26. Sri Lanka questioned the independence of the human rights office of the UN after the US asked the UN to investigate human rights violations by the Sri Lankan government. The US resolution calls for the UN's Human Rights Council to investigate "past abuses and to examine more recent attacks on journalists, human rights defenders, and religious minorities."  Reuters/Dinuka Liyanawatte
