Sri Lanka has warned British Prime Minister David Cameron that he has no right to raise the issue of human rights during his visit for the Commonwealth Summit.

Sri Lanka's information minister has accused Mr Cameron of raising questions about alleged war crimes during the conflict with Tamil Tiger rebels to secure the votes of Britain's Tamil community.

James Robbins reports from Colombo.
