Monks protest a United Nations resolution.

In Colombo, Sri Lanka, Buddhist monks gathered to pray for the defeat of a U.N. resolution. They were joined by thousands of others gathered outside the British Embassy urging Britain to defeat the measure, holding placards read, "UK, don't support terrorism. Be friendly to Sri Lanka."
