    The fact that the police within 1hour went to raid the one of the bombers house could mean only one thing the detailed intelligence report were with them.

    This search operations should have been done a month ago when alerts of bomb attacks were received. Why the delayed action?? Political or negligence?? Deaths could have been avoided.

    Sri Lanka I am certain will overcome this devastation. Because Sri Lanka will not contain this situation unlike other nations but will seek to eliminate it. A cancer must be taken out quickly before it grows. Good job to all the hardworking military personnel.
