    Credit to the security forces for being vigilant even after war. Let us hope this is just another ploy of politics, and not an actual threat.

    Are we surprised....??

    Ratna C Wednesday, 30 March 2016 07:29 PM

    Yes of course, we cannot rule out the Mahinda gang being behind these dirty tricks.They are capable of any ugly things.

    Ratna, C. Wednesday, 30 March 2016 07:27 PM

    Why do you rush to conclusions; the prime suspects in this case are Mahinda

    Ratna, C. Wednesday, 30 March 2016 07:25 PM

    Yes, Mahinda and Co is trying all their dirty games, no doubt!

    Lankan Wednesday, 30 March 2016 06:22 PM

    Please don't beat the terrorism drum, no one want violence, it is the people who are letting security forces when they find something suspicious!

    Nadeesha Wednesday, 30 March 2016 06:00 PM

    GOVERNMENT SHOULD SHOW TRANSPARENCY IN THIS CASE.

    Madhu Wednesday, 30 March 2016 05:52 PM

    I saw pictures of this suicide vest in other sites - tell you what, the suicide vest was in an old SINHALA paper - Sinhala paper not a normal in northern household yet. definitely is from south or from one the army camp -

    IVJ Wednesday, 30 March 2016 05:20 PM

    Wonder why the explosives were wrapped in Sinhalese news paper. Ooops, those who planted this forgot to use a tamil newspaper!!!!

    poraa Wednesday, 30 March 2016 04:54 PM

    What North CM says about this? Is he still saying demilitarize the North

    Zaheer Wednesday, 30 March 2016 01:02 PM

    Tamil brothers we trust you all, please do not allow another blood shed in this country of ours.

    Wiren Wednesday, 30 March 2016 12:56 PM

    Will the president embrace this terrorist and forgive him in public?

    Myya Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:17 AM

    Please release the suspect.We should promote reconciliation.

    nishan Wednesday, 30 March 2016 12:47 PM

    anyone who can use googel can see ltte weapons were being discovered after the war including when previous ogvernment was in charge.

    Lamaya Wednesday, 30 March 2016 12:40 PM

    @de silvaWhat made you to think these explosives are belong to war time. These are not old explosives my friend. Then why the hell the owner of the house fled the area.

    Gobba Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:50 AM

    We are already aware of a Plan by MR stooges in the Military to ferment trouble in the country. This might be one of those acts. Military Intelligence is on FULL ALERT to these type of moves.

    de silva Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:47 AM

    good job by the forces. even after the war victory hings like this happen. so mahinda supporters should not be so happy about it. even when mahindas last two years forces found so many things like these. credit should be go to forces for finding them before they do any harm.

    local Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:40 AM

    Now blame MR for this also via DM iOS App

    Jagath Leanage Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:35 AM

    If it so , we might be able to get the services of M.R. once again to our country.

    Gayan Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:33 AM

    Now this is something we seriously need to consider

    MY3_Fan Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:23 AM

    MR's gone to Chavakachcheri and planted this. This is all propaganda against our Yahapalana Govt. I take presidents' word when it comes to our national security. After all he has never betrayed anyone in his life. *Sarcasm*

    hero Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:19 AM

    No no no.. i'm going to flee sri lanka

    Jagath Leanage Wednesday, 30 March 2016 11:18 AM

    My goodness. Re-incarnation of Velupillai Prabakaran?
