For what it's worth, the most recent caution regarding travel to Sri Lanka occurred back in March and was regarding student protests around the U.S. Embassy. So apparently they did not share the intel.

Gov says in retaliation for Christchurch shootings which were in retaliation for Sweden truck attack on pedestrians.

Violence begets more violence.

I hate how the BBC won’t let me show their links.

https://news.yahoo.com/death-toll-sri-l ... 28803.html

Death toll in attack rises to 359. One suicide vest at a hotel malfunctioned or the death toll would have been higher.

This may be related to ISIS being defeated and fighters returning home and restarting the war in their home countries.

A lot of political turmoil in Sri Lanka may have allowed the bombers to advance their plans.

Reports of Muslims taking shelter in Mosques to avoid persecution since the bombings.

Social Media shut down to prevent hatred spreading on line. Most likely they have strict gun laws. Yes their gun laws are restrictive.

One suicide bomber arrested and released before attack.
Two wealthy foreign educated brothers were suicide bombers.

Blew up a motorcycle in April to test explosives.
