A top military officer ensured the envoys of Islamic countries that a team of eight army personnel had been stationed at each police station concerned to assist the police in the event of any communal riot, the Daily Mirror learns.

The Organization of Islamic Countries called on Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Admiral Ravindra C. Wijegunaratne on Wednesday to discuss the latest situation.

The discussion centred on the outbreak of violence in some areas of the northwestern province and Minuwangoda, and steps were taken to contain the tension.

Among the organisation members that were represented were Iran, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Bangladesh, Egypt and others.

The CDS briefed the steps taken by the government and assured them that the situation had been brought under control by the security forces and the police. He is reported to have said that a team of military personnel has been stationed at each police station concerned to be deployed in the case of an emergency.

He likened the Eastern Sunday bomb attack in Sri Lanka to the 9/11 attack in the United States. (Kelum Bandara)

    With such an impressive delegation, why did they not collectively warn the SL government of the terrorist threat? They must have been aware of the rising radicalisation prevailing in the country through their collective intelligence. Their help might have prevented a great deal, including their present concerns. Also, what measures are they taking re their countrymen overstaying their visas and/or illegally entering the country?

    Even if you station a 1000 army personal, if they are their to watch the criminal acts... then it is of no use.

    SL - they have concern about the innocent muslims, not the terrorists

    The CDS should also open an investigation into the military personnel who stayed passive and let this all happen and also colluding with the thugs. Not only assuring and closing the chapter.
