For Defense Minister Ruwan Wijewardene the massacre in churches and hotels on Easter day would be retaliation for xenophobic attacks against mosques in New Zealand. To act two local groups, the National Thowheed Jama'athe the Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim, probably supported by an external network. A mission inspired by ISIS that claimed responsibility for the action on Tuesday, providing the battle names of seven bombers, a detail that may be a more convincing indication of its involvement. However, there is still a lot to discover. One wonders if it is possible that a gang of Islamic extremists, known for destroying Buddhist statues, has passed, without an intermediate step, to one of the most serious attacks of this era, with 321 victims. Although it is possible that some of the militants have had experiences on some Jihad fronts, as the premier pointed out. In Sri Lanka the risky new attacks remain high, the police are in fact looking for a bomb van. Important developments while information on ignored alarms continues to leak, including one within hours of the explosions.
