[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 March 2000, 20:43 GMT]
A group of extremist Sinhala Buddhist organizations picketed in Colombo protesting against the Norwegian peace initiative seeking a political solution to the island's ethnic conflict.

About 100 people, representing several Sinhala extremist organizations, including Sinhala Weera Vidhana and National Movement Against Terrorism, marched from Borella towards the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Ward Place and began shouting slogans against Norway's involvement said sources.

Protestors shouted slogans such as "Do not interfere in internal affairs" and "Do not talk with the Tigers" said sources.

Later the protestors attempted to hand over a memorandum to Norway embassy officials. But no Norway officials volunteered to accept the memorandum, the sources added.
