Sri Lanka police grant time to hand over illegal weapons

Sri Lanka police name all 9 Easter Sunday suicide bombers

Sri Lanka bolstered security on Friday with fears of attacks against several bridges and flyovers in Colombo as well as police stations.

Speaking to IANS, the officer, who did not wish to be named, said: "We have no such information".

The police also said that the Easter Sunday attackers had assets worth over 7 billion Sri Lankan rupees in their possession, the Colombo Gazette reported. In the video, a bearded man with Baghdadi's appearance says the Sri Lanka bombings were Daesh's response to losses in its last territorial stronghold of Baghouz in Syria.

"Intelligence Bureau (IB) and other officials from national agencies have interrogated him", police official said adding the man claimed that he had reached Kerala on February 20.

Authorities in Sri Lanka have blamed the blasts on two previously little-known local Islamist groups - National Thowheed Jamath and Jamathei Millathu Ibraheem - whom they suspect had worldwide links.

On being asked why Sri Lanka had not acted on the intelligence inputs shared by India on the attacks, the army chief said, "there was a gap in the government that everybody could see today".

Police media spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekara said that the tense situation was a result of a personal dispute between two groups and the situation has been brought under control. Authorities said the group's leader carried out a suicide attack on Colombo's Shangri-La Hotel.

In an interview with the Sky News, Sirisena said the authorities are aware of "a small group" of Sri Lankans, who have travelled overseas to receive training from the IS over the past decade.

For Monday, May 6, the government had made a decision to resume lessons in public schools. It should be noted that this is for the first time that an official from Sri Lanka is confirming Kerala's key role in triggering the blasts.

There were at least 42 foreigners among the 257 killed, while some 480 were also wounded.

Nine suicide bombers, including a woman, carried out the series of blasts.
