Colombo, Sri Lanka: 

Sri Lanka's police declared Tuesday a nationwide curfew for a second night running, after anti-Muslim riots killed one man and left dozens of shops, homes and mosques damaged.

Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said the night curfew will go into effect from 9:00 pm (15:30 GMT) while the most affected North Western Province will have a longer shutdown.

The government issued a text message to citizens announcing the curfew.
