Sri Lanka to declare emergency following Easter Sunday attacks

Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena on Monday Sirisena will announce a situation of nationwide emergency from midnight after the multiple bomb attacks on Easter Sunday suicide bomb blasts that rocked churches and hotels and claimed the lives of 290 people and left 500 injured.

“The government has decided to gazette the clauses related to prevention of terrorism to emergency regulation and gazette it by President’s office.

This move was made to deal with terrorism and not to curb the individual freedom of expression.

Sri Lanka cabinet spokesperson Rajitha Senaratne had earlier said that the bombings took place with aids from an international network.

“We do not believe these attacks were carried out by a group of people who were confined to this country,” he said.

He added, “There was an international network without which these attacks could not have succeeded.”
