        A viral footage has shown the interesting moment some angry protesters in Sri Lanka took over the swimming pool inside the palace of their president. The president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa was at about the same time ferried to safety, boarding a naval craft in Colombo which took him away after which he announced his plans to resign on July 13th.


        Why Sri Lankans are protesting 

        The protest in Sri Lanka was occasioned by severe economic hardships, the BBC reports. The hardships have been described as excruciating and the worse since 1948.

        It came to a head after the angry protesters stormed the presidential palace, forcefully gained entrance and set the prime minister’s house on fire.
