Buddhist Monk Assaults Pastor

A Buddhist monk and about 10 other individuals forced their way into the Potters House Church in Dambulla on Aug. 7, 2019, and assaulted the pastor during a prayer meeting. After threatening to kill the pastor and demanding that he leave the village, the Buddhists began to hit him in the face, head and chest. A policeman arrived to stop the attack, and the pastor lodged a complaint against his attackers before seeking treatment at a hospital.
