Sri Lankan media shows surveillance video of two alleged suspects in hotel before blast

The CCTV footage reveals two men, wearing similar caps and backpacks, walking through a hotel corridor and taking a lift to the third level, Sirasa TV said. One of the men was then seen walking behind patrons in the hotel restaurant, before a white flash and shaky footage envelops the screen, allegedly showing the moment a bomb is detonated.

A Sri Lankan official said on Wednesday (April 24) they had arrested 60 people for questioning over the Easter Sunday attacks on churches and hotels, claimed by the Islamic State group, as the death toll climbed again to 359.
