Sri Lanka's lawmakers impeach chief judge - Article Photos 1/5

Sri Lankan lawyers sit in protest against the government's impeachment bid to remove chief justice Shirani Bandaranayake at the court complex building in Colombo, Sri Lanka, Friday, Jan. 11, 2013. The lawyers accuse the government of violating the constitution by continuing the impeachment process against Bandaranayake despite court orders against it. They say the impeachment plan is a part of a government move to undermine the independence of the judiciary. (AP Photo/Eranga Jayawardena)
