Sri Lanka church and hotel explosions: intelligence blunder ahead of terror attack that killed more than 200

Key intelligence on a possible terrorist attack was not passed onto the Sri Lankan government weeks before at least 207 people were killed in a wave of Easter Sunday suicide bombings on churches and five-star hotels.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe acknowledged late last night/Sunday that “information was there” about possible attacks, which left more than 450 injured, adding that “we must also look into why adequate precautions were not taken.”

It was reported that information about potential suicide attacks had been passed by “foreign intelligence” to the Sri Lankan security agencies ten days earlier.
