Sri Lanka's opposition parties hope to install a new government amid the turmoil

Sri Lanka's opposition political parties were meeting Sunday

to agree on a new government a day after the country's president and prime minister

offered to resign in the most dramatic day of monthslong political turmoil,

with protesters storming both leaders' homes and setting fire to one of the buildings in a rage over the economic crisis.

Protesters remained in President Gotabaya Rajapaksa's home,

his seaside office and the prime minister's residence,

, saying they will stay until they officially resign. Soldiers were deployed around the city and Chief of Defense Staff Shavendra Silva called for public support to maintain law and order.
