Sri Lanka's fleeing president will try to seek asylum in Thailand

Former Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa will arrive in Thailand Thursday seeking temporary asylum after fleeing his country in July amid mass protests, Reuters reported, citing two sources.

Rajapaksa flew to Singapore on July 14 after unprecedented unrest sparked by Sri Lanka's worst economic crisis in 70 years and after thousands of protesters stormed the official residence and office of the president.
