According to News1st media outlet, citing an army representative, three explosions have occurred in the city of Kalmunai in eastern Sri Lanka.
Local media reports, citing police, that the suspects blew themselves up at the begining of a major gunfight when security personnel, including the military, attempted to raid a location believed to have been used for the manufacture of suicide vests.
Security personnel seized clothing and flags linked to Daesh* terror group, 150 gelignite sticks, 100,000 iron balls, drones and at least one suicide vest during a raid in the same locality.
