Sri Lanka’s ousted President Rajapaksa returns home

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the ousted president of Sri Lanka, arrived home in the early hours of Saturday after fleeing the nation in July, a top security officer reported.

Rajapaksa resigned after protesters angered by a debilitating economic crisis stormed his office and residence.

He had fled to Singapore via the Maldives and then spent the past few weeks in Thailand.
