    You can't make this stuff up.


    Protesters calling for an end to recent violence in Sri Lanka found themselves brawling with hard-line Buddhist monks on Thursday, after a rally dubbed a “peace protest” turned unexpectedly violent.

    Organizers said there were around 1,000 people in a park in the capital, Colombo, listening to a range of speakers when hard-line saffron-robed monks opposed to concessions to Tamil Tiger rebels mounted the stage and erected banners.

    Some more moderate Buddhist monks, protesting for peace, were already on the stage when punches were thrown. Soon, monks’ robes and fists were flying, although no one was badly hurt, witnesses said.
