Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) has intensified security checks at all arrival and departure points at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) in Katunayake in the aftermath of the bomb explosions that rocked Brussels recently.

SLAF Spokesman Chandima Alwis said there would be additional patrolling within the terminal buildings.

He said joint 24-hour security operations will be carried out by the SLAF and Airport and Aviation authorities.

Several countries have tightened security at their airports to prevent any terror attacks. (Piyumi Fonseka)

    No offence, but do they check women covered in Burka and Abaya?

    I THINK OUR FRIENDLY LTTE EX SERVICEMEN ARE WELL AWARE OF SUICIDE BOMBING, WE CAN GET HELP FROM THEM ........

    Chaos in Paris and Brussels were not caused by women wearing burka or abaya.

    sayaf Saturday, 26 March 2016 04:20 AM

    Why not do a house to house check in dehiwela especially kawdana road..There are a lot IS like fellows there freely roaming around and trying to convert people

    Devin Saturday, 26 March 2016 06:41 AM

    Of course they would; and not just at BIA, but all over the world. However, important to note that it would not as a targeted group, but in response to a concern of the security officer. The procedure would apply to anyone; say my shoes, belt etc. :-)

    Very good move... its a must. Go a head.

    Citizen Saturday, 26 March 2016 07:40 AM

    Checking at the BIA is NOT enough. Check every house and premise of suspicion and otherwise. DONOT allow parcels in buses and trains without checking. via DM Android App

    abaya and burka is easy hideout for terrorists so security must keep eye on them

    lokka Sunday, 27 March 2016 05:03 AM

    when they started to go madarasas they will be brain washed since than

    Lakshman De Silva Saturday, 26 March 2016 08:50 AM

    The Islamic militants have n interest in Sri Lanka and their priorities deviate from Sri Lanka. However if the ISIS wants to detonate a bomb in SRi Lanka, They will do it despite the Airforce checks. Well the Tamils did it not once but several times with these soldiers on duty

    Lankan Saturday, 26 March 2016 09:33 AM

    Very good move and please be alert of passengers from radical countries for terrorism. We also have to be careful of foreigners who can brain wash the locals here

    Ravi Saturday, 26 March 2016 09:38 AM

    why checking Indian Ambulance Service

    mohamed Saturday, 26 March 2016 01:37 PM

    MR can take advantage over this issue.
