The embassy urged people to stay away from crowds and places of worship. Before the Easter attacks, foreign intelligence services warned Sri Lankan authorities about upcoming bombings, but country’s intelligence services failed to act on the warning.
The US Embassy in Sri Lanka issued a statement Thursday warning about the possibility of more terror attacks over the upcoming weekend, citing Sri Lankan authorities.
The attacks have been blamed on Sri Lankan Islamic terror group National Thowheeth Jama’ath (“National Monotheism Organization”), which is believed to have pledged its loyalty to the Daesh terror group. On 23 April, Daesh claimed responsibility for the attacks.Priest Says Not Allowed to Visit Butina in US Jail Ahead of Sentencing Hearing
