CCTV footage from the Shangri-La Hotel shows two suspected terrorists wandering around the hotel, three days after the devastating blasts across Sri Lanka on Easter killed over 350 people and injured over 500.
Shangri-La was one of the three five-star hotels from where explosions were reported.
The CCTV footage, shared by news agency ANI and aired by a local Sri Lankan channel, shows the suspected terrorists enter an elevator in the hotel, donning blue caps and carrying backpacks. They are seen exiting the elevator soon after. The footage then shows one of the suspects at what looks like the hotel’s restaurant walking around with the bag. Quite a number of people were present at the spot.
Both the church and the hotel were among the eight places where the string of explosions took place. The deadly blasts injured over 500; the casualties had many foreigners including eight Indians. The Sri Lankan police have taken 58 suspects in custody.
The powerful blasts – six in quick succession on Easter morning and then two more hours later – left the island nation grieving.
The ISIS has claimed responsibility for the fatal bombings. The terror group has also released a video of eight men who are said to have carried out the attack. The men declare their loyalty to their group’s leader in the video.
