After the Friday prayers in Bambalapitiya Mosque, Muslims assembled in front of the Mosque and started to march along the Galle road towards the US embassy in Colpetty.

Sri Lanka Police placed barricades at the Colpetty junction to stop the marchers from proceeding to the US embassy, sources said.
