Militants set off bombs during Sri Lanka raid, killing 15

Updated : April 27, 2019 12:28 PM IST

The gunbattle that began Friday night and the carnage that followed come amid widespread fear of more attacks as officials hunt for militants with explosives believed to still be at large after the coordinated bombings of churches and luxury hotels that killed more than 250 nearly a week ago.
Raids and police curfews have shut down areas of eastern Sri Lanka, and Catholic leaders have canceled Sunday Masses indefinitely.
The Sri Lanka military said security forces had recovered explosives, detonators, 'suicide kits,' military uniforms and Islamic State group flags in the ongoing raids.
