Nine suicide bombers took part in Lanka bombings

first_imgColombo: Nine suicide bombers, including a woman, were involved in the massive Easter Sunday bombings and 60 people have been arrested so far for their suspected links to Sri Lanka’s worst terror attack that killed at least 359 people, a top police officer said Wednesday. Suicide bombers, believed to be members of local Islamist extremist group, carried out a series of devastating blasts that tore through churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Sunday. The state minister of defence Ruwan Wijewardena said the multiple bomb attacks were carried out not by the NTJ but by its splinter group. Sri Lanka’s government had earlier blamed the blasts on the NTJ.last_img
