A bomb has just gone off as a van explodes right outside a church where many were killed on Sunday in Sri Lanka.
As at the time of filing this report, the number of casualties are yet to be ascertained as the bomb went off today in Colombo.
Police say they earlier inspected the van which had been parked near St. Anthony’s Shrine since Sunday.
They discovered three bombs that they tried to defuse – instead, the bombs detonated, sending pedestrians fleeing in panic.
A series of bombings yesterday killed almost 300 people, including at least 27 foreigners – about 500 others were wounded in the blasts.
Officials said 24 suspects are in custody for questioning.
Sri Lankan authorities said today they found 87 bomb detonators at a bus station in the capital.
