Will the economic crisis in Sri Lanka get worse?

BBC, 14 May 2022
Sri Lanka's new prime minister has told the BBC an economic crisis that has brought misery and unrest is "going to get worse before it gets better".

The country is facing fuel shortages and soaring food prices, with some Sri Lankans forced to skip meals.

Anger over the government's handling of the crisis has led to violent protests.

Ranil Wickremesinghe, who returns for a sixth time as prime minister of Sri Lanka, promised families will get three meals a day in an attempt to diffuse rising tensions.
