One day after a devastating series of attacks on hotels and churches across Sri Lanka, another explosion blew out windows in the residential street in central Colombo and knocked a security officer off his feet.
When a series of suicide bombs tore apart churches and hotels across Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, most of the country -- and the rest of the world -- was taken completely by surprise. But in the capital, Colombo, it was not a shock to everyone.

Sri Lankan police said they would not comment on the video until the conclusion of the investigation.
