Sri Lanka spy chief blamed for failures before Easter attack

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — A Sri Lankan Parliamentary committee that investigated last April’s Easter suicide bombings has concluded that the country’s spy chief was primarily responsible for the intelligence failure that led to the deaths of 269 people in the attacks. In a report released on Wednesday, the committee said State Intelligence Service Chief Nilantha Jayawardena received information on possible attacks as early as April 4 — 17 days before the suicide bombings took place — but there were delays on his part in sharing the intelligence with other agencies.
