Sri Lanka Attacks "Retaliation For New Zealand Christchurch"

Sri Lanka's Easter Sunday bombings were retaliation for a recent attack on mosques in New Zealand, the country's state minister of defence said on Tuesday, Aljazeera reports. 

"The preliminary investigations have revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka (on Sunday) was in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch," Ruwan Wijewardene told parliament.

A little-known Muslim organisation, National Thawheeth Jama'ath (NTJ), has been linked to the worst attacks on the Indian Ocean nation since its civil war ended a decade ago.

Wijewardene said that along with NTJ, another local group, Jammiyathul Millathu Ibrahim (JMI) was also believed to be involved in the attacks.
