One of key suspects of Sri Lanka bomb attacks arrested: Interpol

Amman, France-based international police agency Interpol on Friday announced the arrest of “one of the alleged ringleaders” of suicide bombings, which rocked hotels and churches across Sri Lanka two months ago.

Following the publication of an Interpol Red Notice, which is a request to law enforce, Ahamed Milhan Hayathu Mohamed was detained in the Middle East, it said in a statement.

Wanted on charges of terrorism and murder, the 29-year-old Sri Lankan national was extradited on Friday to Sri Lanka along with four other suspects, it added.

“The arrest and extradition of one of the key suspects in the Sri Lanka bomb attacks is an important step in the ongoing investigation, and one which Interpol is proud to have supported,” said the agency Secretary General Jurgen Stock.
