Sri Lanka Buddhists vow to protect themselves

Buddhist group says they plan to take the law into their own hands to protect their culture.

    There is growing tension between hardline Buddhists, Muslims and Christians in Sri Lanka.

    A group of Buddhist organisations says they will have to take the law into their own hands to protect the Sinhala Buddhist way of life.

    They say authorities are not doing enough, leaving them little choice.
