ITV News Asia Correspondent Debi Edward has filmed from one of the road blocks and said the city remains on high alert: "It's these road blocks that are continuing to create a bit of tension here, a bit of unease as we move into a weekend where there is a warning of potentially more attacks".

Authorities are now in a desperate hunt for suspects linked to the bloodshed.

Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said militants who may have explosives remain on the loose in the country and "may go out for a suicide attack".

President Maithripala Sirisena met Thursday with political party leaders and announced he would revive a military-police body last used during the country's fight against Tamil insurgents to coordinate operations after the bombings.

The army, navy and air force poured more than 3,000 additional troops onto the streets to help police.

Britain advised its citizens against travelling to the island country.

Prime Minister of Sri Lanka Ranil Wickremesinghe listens to questions from journalists during a press conference in Colombo on April 23, 2019.

Since the suicide bombings on churches and hotels, in which more than 250 people were killed, police have been conducting raids across Sri Lanka to find more details about the perpetrators and their supporters.

Muslims in Sri Lanka were urged to pray at home and not after the State Intelligence Services warned of possible auto bomb attacks, amid fears of retaliatory violence. On Wednesday, Wijewardene, the junior defence minister, said the attackers had broken away from National Towheed Jamaat and another group, which he identified only as "JMI".

Son Heung-min trusts Tottenham team-mates to cope without him against Ajax
So West Ham's shot at a top-seven finish has passed them by so they have nothing to really work for at the moment. What TV channel is Tottenham v West Ham on? But I trust my team, I trust this stadium so I'm not anxious '.

Prime Minister Wickremesinghe said some of the suspected attackers responsible for the Easter bombings were being monitored by the country's intelligence services.

Wijewardene said numerous suicide bombers were highly educated and came from well-to-do families.

Hashim, who founded the NTJ, appeared in a video released by ISIS when it claimed the strikes. "We can take those who are, who belong to terrorist groups operating in Sri Lanka", he was quoted as saying. The security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation, said British intelligence was not watching the man, Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed, during his stay in the country.

With Sri Lankan officials on the defensive for apparently ignoring foreign warnings that attacks were likely, police chief Pujith Jayasundara became the second senior figure to resign. Wickremesinghe identified him as a wealthy spice trader.

In a house on the other side of a quiet, leafy lane full of mansions, Buhari Mohammed Anwar, 77, a retired primary school teacher, said his neighbour was a nice person who helped the poor. A fourth attack on a hotel failed, authorities said.

In Colombo, John Keells Holdings, the parent company of the Cinnamon Grand hotel, one of the sites targeted in the Easter Sunday bombings, told employees at its various hotel properties to stay inside "further to the communications we have received" in an email shared with the AP.

Nine people are suspected of carrying out the attacks.

Two more people, a man and a woman, blew themselves up at another location as security forces launched a raid, killing three police, sources said.
