US LATER WARNING ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR MORE ATTAKER IN SRI LANKA

Sri Lankan leaders shook the aftermath of an obvious homestead militant attack and massive intelligence failed the security of Tuesday and the military hired powers to arrest the last used when the devastating civil war ended in 2009.

Leaders who were quoted by the AP said the suspect leader of the little known militant group – National Thowfeek Jamaath – began posting videos online for three years and demanded that non-Muslims should ” eliminated “. The bombs were all Sri Lanka, but the authorities said international bands were suspicious.

“We don’t believe these attacks were made by a group of people limited to this country,” health minister Rajitha Senaratne, according to Reuters. “There was an international network without which these attacks could not have succeeded.”

Among the 40 people arrested with suspicions of links to the Easter bombings, the driver was a habit used by the suicide bombers and the owner of a house where some of them lived.
