Supporters of Sri Lanka’s jailed former army chief General Sarath Fonseka hold up placards during a protest against President Mahinda Rajapaksa in front of Welikada Prison in Colombo 11 October, 2010.

Sri Lanka’s parliament last week revoked the parliamentary seat of Fonseka, who ran unsuccessfully against Rajapaksa. He was jailed after being found guilty of misappropriating funds. REUTERS/Dinuka Liyanawatte
