A NINTH explosion has been reported today in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo.
It comes a day after 290 were killed in eight blasts yesterday in a series of terror attacks.
A van parked near one of the churches that was bombed on Easter Sunday has exploded, but no injuries have been reported.
Cops inspected the van today after people reported it had been parked near St. Anthony’s Shrine since Sunday.
They discovered three bombs that they tried to defuse – instead, the bombs detonated, sending pedestrians fleeing in panic.
A series of bombings yesterday killed almost 300 people, including at least 27 foreigners – about 500 others were wounded in the blasts.
Officials said 24 suspects are in custody for questioning.
Sri Lankan authorities said today they found 87 bomb detonators at a bus station in the capital.
