Sri Lanka’s police arrested seven members of the terrorist organization National Thawheed Jama'ath who were preparing to become suicide attackers, ONAreports citing TASS.

According to the law enforcement authorities, the arrested were closely linked with the organizer of a series of explosions in Sri Lanka.

"It is revealed that the suspects had been trained very discreetly in Hambantota over a long period on the use of arms. Mohamed Nasar Mohamed Asath who blew up inside the Zion Church in Batticaloa is said to have provided the training instructions," the reports said.

The police are currently interrogating them on their involvement in the terror attacks.
