eight years and this is not something which i think then in the recent past where i thought we missed occasions on going to see if this group was leading to any other radical group in the country and may that they have had any funding links so this investigation is going on and maybe in the coming days the government should be able to shed more light as to what exactly these groups were and were connected to them ok journalist as i mean the national do you know with the latest tonight from colombo i mean i thank you. for many muslims intro say they fear a backlash after the easter sunday attacks the suicide bombings have been condemned by muslim groups but many in the community say they feel vulnerable. has this report. sheikh. back home to. sought he's too scared to spend the night in his house for enjoyment and other ships on easter sunday a few hundred metres from the even lives
