Terrorists ‘continue plotting attacks’ on Sri Lanka tourist spots, US State Dept warns

Terrorists in Sri Lanka might strike again, the US State Department has warned in its latest travel advisory update, asking Americans to exercise extreme caution following the Easter Sunday bombings which killed almost 300 people.

“Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Sri Lanka. Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations,” the State Department said.

Possible terrorist targets may also include crowded places such as transportation hubs, markets and shopping malls, in addition to hotels, clubs, restaurants and places of worship. Americans in the country are also being asked to stay clear of parks, major sporting and cultural events.
