A large cache of explosives and several other items, including a banner with the Islamic State logo, were recovered from a house in Samanthurai today.

The Police said that items used to make bombs were also recovered from the house, including metal balls.

A drone camera was also found in the house, the Police added. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. It is of little use to just ban drones from air space. such decisions should be well consulted and formulated to be effective. Importation, sell, possess such equipment or user guides, assemble, demonstrate or operate in Sri Lankan territorial limits on land or sea should have been the prohibition.
    We are good at coming up with half baked ideas just to pacify the masses.
