It is reported by Mirror, citing the statement of the Minister of Defense Ruvan Viyevardeni.
As he said during a speech in parliament, a preliminary investigation shows that the attacks in the country were committed by local extremists in response to the terrorist attack in Christchurch New Zealand.
A series of explosions occurred in the temples and five-star hotels of Sri Lanka on April 21, on Catholic Easter.
On March 15, a double terrorist attack took place in the mosques of the New Zealand city of Christchurch. According to recent reports, at least 50 people died as a result of the attack.
