Sri Lanka bombers revealed

Correspondent

Sri Lanka is under curfew again tonight, and while police have made progress, saying they’ve identified eight of the nine bombers, they are also in crisis.

The President has demanded the Police Chief resigns, but he’s held out so far, unlike the Defence Secretary, who has quit amid the scandal over detailed warnings from India that weren’t followed up or shared.

The number confirmed dead has risen again to 359 and there are still bodies yet to be identified.

We now know much more about the attackers. Most were well educated and well off, one had studied in the UK and Australia.

We have been to a copper factory owned by one of two wealthy brothers who blew themselves up in luxury hotels. It’s believed some of the bombs may have been made there.
