Sri Lanka’s Debt Default

Sri Lanka is in the midst of its worst economic crisis in seventy years. Foreign currency is in short supply, and the government in Colombo simply doesn't have the money to either pay for essential imports or make its debt repayments. Last week it announced it was defaulting on its foreign debt as it desperately tries to take control of the situation. But many inside the country have had enough of the government and they want the president out.
