  • Isil claims Sri Lanka attack as prime minister says there are militants with explosives on the run

    Sri Lanka's prime minister has warned there are more explosives and militants "out there" after the Easter suicide bombings that killed 321 people. Ranil Wickremesinghe made the comment Tuesday at a news conference, and said some officials will likely lose their jobs over intelligence lapses surrounding the attack. His warning came as Islamic State claimed responsibility for the terror attack on its official Amaq news agency. The group posted an image of seven masked attackers and the unmasked ringleader, Zahran Hashim, in front of its black flag. In a statement the men were named as Abu Ubaida - thought to refer to Hashim - Abu Khalil, Abu Hamza, Abu al-Baraa, Abu Muhammad, Abu Abdulla and Abu al-Mukhtar. Isis's official news agency, Amaq, posted this image of eight attackers, including the previously identified Zahran Hashim (centre) Sri Lanka's defence minister on Tuesday declared the attacks were retaliation for a recent attack on mosques in New Zealand, adding that two domestic Islamist groups were believed to be responsible. Ruwan Wijewardene’s comments were made as the South Asian island held its first mass funeral for about 30 of the victims of Sunday’s serial suicide bombings in three high profile churches and three luxury hotels. Sri Lankan intelligence has named the mastermind behind the Easter Sunday attacks as Moulvi Zahran Hashim, an extremist local cleric who incited his followers to violence with fiery sermons on his social media channels.

At the same time, AFP agency reported that two Muslim brothers carried out two of the hotel suicide blasts. The brothers, sons of a wealthy Colombo spice trader, blew themselves up as guests queued for breakfast at the Shangri-La and Cinnamon Grand hotels in the capital Colombo. The brothers, whose names have not been revealed, were in their late twenties and operated their own "family cell", an investigation officer said.

These people are from the families which are considered as well-educated and elite,” Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, the country’s Justice Minister told parliament. said, adding that the government was aware of some foreigners coming to Sri Lanka to spread what he called Islamic extremism. A Syrian national was also arrested on Tuesday. It was not yet clear if he played a role in the attacks.

Some experts have pointed out that the sophisticated nature of the attacks suggest that they would have required preparation that began before the Christchurch atrocity. Little is known about JMI, other than reports it was established last year and is affiliated to a similarly named group in Bangladesh. "The preliminary investigations have revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka was in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch," said Mr Wijewardene. A suspected suicide bomber carries a backpack on a street in Negombo, Sri Lanka Fifty people were killed in shooting attacks on two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on March 15, and horrific footage of the bloodbath was livestreamed on social media channels. The Sri Lankan authorities are still investigating how local militants gained the training and equipment to carry out an assault that is now considered to be one of the worst global terrorist atrocities since the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington. One theory is that Sri Lankan extremists could have been assisted by returning fighters from Iraq and Syria. It also emerged on Tuesday that Sri Lankan police are holding a Syrian national in custody for questioning over the Easter Sunday attacks. "The terrorist investigation division of the police arrested a Syrian national following the attacks for interrogation," a source told Reuters. Two other officials with knowledge of the investigation confirmed the detention. "He was arrested after interrogation of local suspects," a second source said. Police have now detained 40 suspects in connection with the attack.

A moment of silence was observed at 08:30, to mark the timing of the first bomb on Sunday morning. Flags were lowered to half-mast and people, many of them in tears, bowed their heads in respect.

  • Controversial 'Game of Thrones' sex scene gives away a key detail about Arya Stark

    We're two Game of Thrones episodes in, and the story has further advanced towards the event we've all been waiting for. I'm not going to spoil what just happened on HBO's biggest show, or what's about to go down next week, but I will discuss two things from last night's episode, both concerning a certain girl. The following spoilers won't ruin your Game of Thrones experience, although one of them deals directly with an older Game of Thrones fan theory. How old is Arya?Arya finally got some, so to speak, during the second episode, as she hooked up with Gendry in a slightly cringy scene. Unsurprisingly, the internet exploded, as fans were shocked to discover these two characters having sex, especially Arya.But the internet should remember that Arya is about 18 years old in season 8. Gendry, meanwhile, is 23. In real life, Maise Williams is 22, while Joe Dempsie is 31. William talked to Entertainment Weekly about Arya's scene with Gendry, revealing how she learned about that scene and what was required of her: [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] were like: 'You can show as much or as little as you want.' So I kept myself pretty private. I don't think it's important for Arya to flash. This beat isn't really about that. And everybody else has already done it on the show, so…If you're still in shock, maybe you should remember that when Danaerys and Khal Drogo got together in season one, the character was 16 years old, actually three years older than in the book. And Drogo wasn't exactly a tender lover initially. And let's not forget that Sansa was quite young when she was married off.Arya may have joined Game of Thrones when she was young, but she's now a grown woman in real life, playing a teenage serial killer who's experienced quite a lot for someone her age. She was bound to want to experience love and sex as well, and she's doing it on her own accord, and on her own terms.The audience should grow with Arya in that regard.* * * The Waif theoryHowever, the most interesting detail coming out from this sex scene, aside from Gendry telling Arya who he is and teasing that he has a claim to the Iron Throne, is Arya's marks.The huge scars are proof to Gendry that she can fight and kill, and she's ready to deal with life-threatening events and survive. To the audience, they're a reminder of her past. The scars seem to be somewhat in line with Arya's wounds from season 6, when the Waif attempted to kill her:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQYoBvtEPWYArya somehow managed to save herself, survive those injuries, and ultimately kill the Waif:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6l9oS16S1IThat scene inspired a fan theory that said the Waif had actually taken Arya's face after killing the young Stark girl. By having the Waif posing as a Stark, the Faceless Men would have a potentially useful weapon on their hands. That theory seems to have been debunked once and for all last night.The scars might not match Arya's wounds perfectly, and that could be true, because we never got to see her injuries in the first place. We do know the Waif attacked her from the right side, although Arya was wearing plenty of clothes at the time. It's unclear, however, how much the Waif cut towards the right and under Arya's rib cage. Here's a reminder of Arya's recovery process:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6X8uQfG_Zb0On the other hand, the fact that Arya got intimate with someone for the first time might also be an indication that nobody is wearing her face. I mean, would a face still stay on while you get that close to someone?
