Sri Lanka Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekara announced yesterday that another suspect involved in the Easter Explosions had been taken into custody. This follows from concentrated efforts by Lankan officials throughout the last 3 weeks to crack down on all those responsible with 58 arrests already made. In the last week alone, authorities captured 3 suspects including the brother of one of the bombers, located weapons, and traced finances and assets of the NTJ, the group responsible for the attacks.
