Sri Lanka’s Bomber Educated In UK And Australia

One of the attackers behind the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka studied in the UK, officials say, as further details on the bombers begin to emerge.

The country’s Deputy Defence Minister, Ruwan Wijewardene said the bomber studied in the UK before doing a course in Australia.

Police say they have identified eight out of nine attackers – one of whom is believed to have been a woman – with no foreigners among them.

The announcement comes after the death toll rose again to 359 on Wednesday with more than 500 people wounded.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said the Islamic State (IS) group may be linked to the blasts.

IS has said it was responsible for the attacks, although it has not provided direct evidence of its involvement.

On Wednesday, the US envoy to Sri Lanka warned that there were “ongoing terrorist plots” in the country.

The country remains tense with Police still looking for suspects and possible further explosives.
