Sri Lanka has partially lifted an overnight curfew imposed nationwide after an upsurge in anti-Muslim violence, three weeks after the deadly Easter Sunday bombings.

Police say the curfew in the North-Western province will remain until further notice.

Mosques and Muslim-owned shops n were vandalised or set on fire, and a Muslim man slashed to death. In several towns, police fired into the air and used tear gas to disperse mobs.

Tensions have been high since Islamist militants attacked churches and hotels on Easter Sunday, killing more than 250 people.  In a televised address, the head of Police warned that officers will respond to rioters with maximum force.
