Police officers stand guard outside the Indian High Commission to Sri Lanka behind a tire set alight by demonstrators from the Freedom of National Organization, during a protest against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in Colombo June 10, 2014. Sri Lanka on June 4, 2014, again rejected devolving police powers to the provinces as requested by Modi and required by the constitution as a means to ease tension with minority Tamils. Sri Lanka agreed with India in 1987 to devolve powers, including over police and land, to a regional level as a means to improve relations between Tamils and majority Sinhalese.
