DD News
Sri Lanka has extended by another month, the state of emergency imposed after the Easter Sunday attacks. 

This is the fourth time emergency provisions have been imposed after the attacks which killed 268 people including 45 foreigners. 

A gazette notification, issued by President Maithripala Sirisena today, said the President is of the opinion that the extension was necessary in the interest of public security and the preservation of public order. 

The emergency was initially imposed on 22nd April, a day after the attacks and extended on two occasions. Government has claimed that the emergency provisions are to grant armed forces necessary powers to act against terrorist activities and doesn’t affect normal life.
