24 suspects arrested in connection with Easter bombings
Sri Lanka Police says that 24 suspects have been arrested so far in connection with the series of explosions in the county yesterday.
Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara said that the suspects are in the custody of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) and that they are being interrogated.
Authorities launched a massive security operation yesterday and imposed a curfew after a wave of bombs in churches and hotels in Sri Lanka killed at least 207 people and injured 450.
The eight blasts, some of which officials said were suicide bomb attacks, appeared timed to cause maximum casualties among worshippers attending Easter services.
Three churches and three luxury hotels were targeted. There were also explosions at a guest house near the zoo and in a residential area of Colombo.
Three hours after the bombings, security forces surrounded a house in the Dematagoda neighbourhood of Colombo, where they arrested seven people, of whom three were reported to have required immediate medical assistance.

87 detonators at one location! the police ought to find out where they were assembled as opposed to detonating them once the source has been identified then they ought to a gas analysis to find out the nature of the explosives and most likely where they came from! The police or whoever ordered the detonation is crazy thereby destroying vital evidence. This morning we awere told that the truck was detonated under controlled conditions even then the blast was spectacular according to a report filed by the CNN
CNN report was interesting in that the original target had been buddhists most likely targets in the past.
The dynamics has shifted towards catholics and catholic churches in predominantly catholic areas with the exception of the church in Batticaloa which is predominantly muslims.
Buddhists are very tolerant according various reports the Buddhist population has declined and the rate hass been estimated by about 15 estminates for the census and stats spend thier time kicking ass instead of doing theri job while their bosses going about farting at the will of the biggest fart the minister.
This is not an act of terror but a systemic approac to colonisation therfore this ought not to be considered an isolated event. The whole security system ought to be fully mobilised and any suspect be arrested on sight under emergency and detained as lomg as the law allows with no access to crooked lawyers and visitors.
The government ought to maintain a catalog of all employed abroad and their employment legitimate. Also passports issued should be made valid only where they plan to be employed!
The people who orchestrated is free they are very well funded and their agents most likely infiltrated into the systems as it was evident, Vesak is oabout 4 weeks away and people ought to stay away until the country is made secure. It will happen regardles but the sri lankans forget easy
