Gunmen opened fire on a prison bus near Colombo on Monday, killing five prisoners and two warders on their way to court in what was believed to be a gangland dispute, officials said.

Thushara Upuldeniya, spokesman for the Prison Department, said an armed gang blocked the bus in Kalutara, 40 km (25 miles) south of the capital, transporting the prisoners, who included an underworld figure.
