Sri Lanka On Edge With Scares, Lock-Downs And Sweeps For Bomb Suspects

Sri Lankan authorities locked down the central bank and shut the road leading to the jittery capital’s airport because of a bomb scare on Thursday.

Authorities have continued to round up suspects in the search for those behind Easter Sunday bombings that killed 359.

A police spokesman also said there was an explosion in a town east of the capital but there were no casualties.

The cause was not clear but it was not a controlled detonation like other blasts in recent days and was being investigated, he said.

With fears of more bombers ready to strike, police said they had asked people to leave offices early in Colombo’s business district to avoid throngs at rush hour.

City-center restaurants were also shutting early.
