Temporary ban on social media lifted

The Government has lifted the temporary ban on social media websites with immediate effect.

The Government restricted access to Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Viber and Twitter after violence broke out in parts of the country on Sunday targeting Muslims.

The violence escalated on Monday with property owned by Muslims being set on fire in Gampaha and parts of the North Western Province.

With the situation now under control and several suspects arrested the Government today lifted the ban on social media.
