Sri Lankan parliament votes to remove Chief Justice
The Sri Lankan parliament has voted to remove Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake in a move analysts say could trigger a constitutional crisis.
The chamber, dominated by supporters of Sri Lanka's president, voted to impeach her by 155 votes to 49.
The government accuses her of corruption - an allegation she denies.
