Colombo Airport on lockdown

Colombo's main international airport was placed on lock-down earlier after a suspected pipe bomb was found by the Sri Lanka's Air Force, just hours after eight bombings that killed at least 207 people.

A spokesperson for the Air Force, Gihan Seneviratne, informed local media, "A PVC pipe which was six feet in length containing explosives in it was discovered."  It is understood that authorities have now carried out a controlled explosion on the device to destroy it and any potential risk to the public.
