Colombo, Sri Lanka, Apr 26, 2019 / 15:40 pm
The Sri Lanka chief of police resigned this week after bombings left dead more than 200 Christians on Easter morning. An official at the defense ministry has also stepped down.
Pujith Jayasundara stepped down April 25, and the announcement was made the following day.
Earlier this week, the country's president, Maithripala Sirisena, had requested Jayasundara's resignation, citing mishandled information related to the bombings.
According to CNN, in weeks prior to the attack, Indian intelligence agencies had shared relevant information with Sri Lanka. The data had been extracted from a member of the Islamic State with connections to Zahran Hashim, who is believed to be one of the people behind the attack.
