Sri Lanka shares slide, trading thin

Nov 26, 2008 (LBO) - The slide in Sri Lankan stocks picked up momentum slightly Wednesday, although volumes remained thin with the indices dragged down by losses in high value shares, brokers said.

Fears of currency devaluation were also affecting investor sentiment.
