Earlier, Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials informed a local court that three suspects including the brother of the suicide bomber of Colombo Church have been arrested.

The suspects were arrested for aiding and abetting the suicide bombers and the court ordered the CID to produce them on May 23. Security forces also recovered a stock of explosives belonging to suicide bombers at Sainthamarudu in eastern province on Friday from a beach area.
