On 13 May day, violent rioters destroyed the Rs. 700 million (US$4 million) Muslim-owned Roza Pasta Factory, which was Sri Lanka’s largest pasta factory. Local witnesses stated 300-400 rioters entered the factory to set it on fire. Viral videos of incident show the large factory complex and machinery still burning hours after the rioting. Reports also claim that the Fire Department refused to douse the blaze and never arrived at the scene, stating that they are out of water.
