Sri Lankan Intelligence Received Information About Attacks Prior to Bombings

The death toll continues to climb Monday morning after 8 suicide bombings killed hundreds of people in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

And now we know Sri Lankan officials received a warning days earlier about a possible attack.

As of now at least 290 people are dead following Sunday’s bombings.

That includes several Americans.

The first three explosions happened during Easter Sunday services at Christian churches.

Three luxury hotels were also hit.

And several hours later another hotel and a private residence were bombed.

Before Sunday’s violence, Sri Lanka’s deputy inspector general of police sent a memo, dated April 11, to intelligence officers, warning about the possibility of an attack, and requesting more security.
