Defence Secretary General Kamal Gunaratne (Retd) said that the public do not need to panic over the email.
He said that the defence and law enforcing agencies are continuing to maintain security and will not allow anyone to disrupt the peace.
Security was beefed up at the Bandaranaike International Airport after an email was received warning of attacks.
BIA officials said that operations at the airport are ongoing as usual while security has been tightened. (Colombo Gazette)
