President revokes colonial-era order and declares 19 leaders of 1818 uprising ‘patriotic war heroes’ who fought for freedom in Sri Lanka, then known as Ceylon.
The Great Rebellion of 1817–1818, also known as the 1818 Uva rebellion, was the third Kandyan War with the British.
A group of Sri Lankans who rebelled against British colonial rule in India have been celebrated as war heroes, almost 200 years after they were condemned as traitors and executed. Ceylon was ruled by Britain from 1815 to 1948, when it regained independence.The group of 19 included one of the leaders of the 1818 rebellion, Keppetipola Disawe, who was beheaded. His unusually shaped skull was then brought back to the UK and placed in a medical museum in Edinburgh, and only returned after official requests in 1954.
- Keppetipola Disawe was surrounded by British troops: he came out to meet them, identified himself, and surrendered. He and other leaders of the rebellion were found guilty of high treason and sentenced to death. Keppetipola is now regarded as a national hero, and when his skull was finally returned it was enshrined in an urn and buried marked by a memorial pillar in Kandy.

Czech Fake News Watchdog Kicks Off Operations
PRAGUE — A Czech unit set up to combat fake news ahead of the country's two crucial elections starts operations on Sunday.
The Center Against Terrorism and Hybrid Threats, an analytical section of the Interior Ministry, plans to rebut disinformation that could be spread with the aim of manipulating elections.
Czechs will likely pick their lawmakers in October. The presidential election is coming up in early 2018. President Milos Zeman, known for his pro-Russian stance, aged 72, has yet to announce whether he plans to run for re-election.
Interior Ministry says that its new section has neither "a button to turn off the internet" nor the right to remove content from the cyberspace.
A Czech-language hoax alleging that a terrorist attack had happened in Prague made the rounds online in July 2016 using this image.
