NBC News — Hundreds protested against the United States monday in the capital of Sri Lanka. The demonstrators are angry over a U.S. decision to support a U.N. human rights resolution.
Protesters shouted anti-American slogans and tried to march to the U.S. embassy in Colombo. The Indian Ocean island nation is under heavy pressure from western nations and international rights groups to investigate alleged war crimes in the final phase of a bloody civil war.
