Sri Lankans mourn slain opposition leader

Mourners gather Saturday around the casket of opposition leader Gamini Dissanayake, who was killed earlier in the week by a suicide bomber while campaigning for the Sri Lankan presidency. Dissanayake's body was later cremated at Independence Square in Colombo, the capital, before thousands of mourners. The bomber killed 53 other people in the attack, which police suspect was carried out by ethnic Tamils who want to establish a separate state in Sri Lanka.
