Sri Lanka's president accuses security officials of not warning him of threats



Sri Lanka's President accused the security officials of not warning him of terrorist threats, saying that the country's indictment of military secrets after his long civil war was vulnerable to attacks as he tried on Friday to distract the bombings on Easter Sunday

"All officials who have neglected their duties will be brought to justice," said President Maithripala Sirisena, according to local news agencies . He added that in the coming days a "complete transformation" of the security apparatus would take place.

Mr. Sirisena, who is also Secretary of Defense, has been heavily criticized after the suicide bombings. Security officials in Sri Lanka had written a memo ten days before the attacks, describing the threat of bomb attacks with names, addresses and phone numbers of the people involved, but it was not widely circulated.

The government of Sri Lanka has been consumed in recent months and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, a rival of the president, complained about the exclusion of security meetings.
