Taking collective responsibility, Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremsinghe on Friday apologised for failing to protect victims from Sunday’s attacks.
Prime Minister’s statement came as President Maithripala Sirisena revealed in a press conference that highly driven information was given by a friendly nation on 4 April which included targets and methods of the attack.
He said until the 12 April, the information was passed around.
The President has said action would be taken against all officials who neglected their duties.
He assured that security forces are capable of wiping out terrorism from the country.
Meanwhile, seven people were arrested along with explosives and suicide vests in the eastern province Friday evening as the situation remained tense over further attacks. Night curfew would be in place from 10 PM to 4 AM.
The explosions take place just days after a massive terrorist attack in Sri Lanka, leaving 253 people killed and over 500 injured. Colombo launched a massive security operation in the wake of the tragedy and imposed curfews and deployed an extra 1,000 troops to the capital.
