Two activists who helped lead mass demonstrations that toppled Sri Lanka’s president have been arrested, police said, as the parliament has extended tough emergency laws imposed to restore order.

Sri Lanka’s acting president, Ranil Wickremesinghe, declared a state of emergency on July 17 as his government seeks to quell social unrest and deal with the economic crisis that has engulfed the country.
