Sri Lankan authorities say that Islamic terrorists carried out the Easter Sunday bombings of churches and hotels that left nearly 300 people dead and another 500 wounded. Twenty-four suspects are now in custody.

Health minister Rajitha Senaratne said Monday that a preliminary examination pointed to National Thowheed Jamath, a local offshoot of ISIS, as being responsible for the deadly attacks. He said that although all the bombers were Sri Lankan, an international network was behind the bombings.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We do not believe these attacks were carried out by a group of people who were confined to this country,” he told reporters. “There was an international network without which these attacks could not have succeeded.”

Three police officers searching for the attackers were killed in a raid at an apartment complex. Authorities also discovered 87 abandoned detonators at a bus stop in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo.
