Heavy rains killed 17 people in Sri Lanka

Heavy rains lashed Sri Lanka, triggering floods and landslides that have killed at least 17 people and forced tens of thousands from their homes. According to officials, after days of rain, rivers on the island nation’s southern and western plains overflowed on the weekend, inundating low-lying areas and forcing thousands into relief centers. The natural disaster comes as Sri Lanka is hoping to ease restrictions to tackle the novel coronavirus. A month-long lockdown to fight a third wave of infections is due to end on June 14.
