COLOMBO (AFP) - Unidentified attackers stabbed and badly wounded a senior Sri Lankan judge on Sunday amid heightened tension between the government and the judiciary. Four armed men assaulted Manjula Tilakaratne, a High Court judge and secretary of the independent Judicial Service Commission, in a suburb of Colombo. He was taken to hospital after being stabbed at least three times, and his mobile phone was stolen. The attack came as the Sunday Times newspaper said the govt was locked in a “cold war” with judges over a recent announcement by the JSC.
