First picture of 'mastermind' behind Sri Lanka suicide bomb attacks as identity of UK student is revealed

First picture of 'mastermind' behind Sri Lanka suicide bomb attacks as identity of UK student is revealedThis is the first image of Inshaf Ahamed Ibrahim, the Sri Lankan suicide bomber and alleged mastermind of the atrocity which killed 359 people. Ibrahim, 33, blew himself up at the Shangri-La Hotel at just before 9am local time in a third-floor restaurant. The hotel was full of tourists including British victims Anita Nicholson, 42, and her two children Alex, 14, and 11-year-old daughter Annabel. Ibrahims younger brother Ilham also killed himself when he detonated a suicide bomb at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, also in the capital Colombo, five minutes later. The father of the two dead terrorists is a senior and wealthy businessman in Sri Lanka who ran a large spice trading company. Inshaf Ibrahim was involved in the spice export company but also ran a copper factory where it is thought the bombs were manufactured. It also emerged one suicide bombers who perpetrated the Easter Sunday attacks was former UK student Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed, The Telegraph has learned. A group of men claiming to be the the Sri Lanka bomb attackers appear in an Isil propaganda video Credit: Twitter Mohamed is understood to have studied in south east England at some point between 2006 and 2007 before later enrolling on a postgraduate course in Australia. He is then believed to have returned to Sri Lanka. He was one of nine terrorists who carried out a series of blasts targeting churches and hotels in the country, killing 359 people - including eight from Britain. More than 500 were injured. His identity came to light after Sri Lanka's deputy defence minister Ruwan Wijewardene said earlier today that one of the bombers had studied in the UK. We believe one of the suicide bombers studied in the UK and then later on did his postgraduate in Australia, before coming back to settle in Sri Lanka, said Mr Wijewardene, without naming the suspect. He said one of the bombers was a woman. He told a press conference in the capital, Colombo, that most of the suicide bombers were well-educated and come from middle or upper-middle class, adding that they were financially quite independent. Some held law degrees, he added. Mr Wijewardenes comments came as the police confirmed that the death toll for Sundays massacre had risen to 359. The attacks were claimed on Tuesday by the Islamic State militant group, which did not give any evidence to support its claim. If true, it would make it one of the worst attacks linked to the group outside Iraq and Syria. The deputy defence minister said that 60 people have been arrested on possible links to the attacks and 32 of those are still in custody. All are Sri Lankan. Sri Lanka attacks - Locator map Among thoseassisting police,reported Indias First Post, is Mohammed Yusuf Ibrahim, a wealthy spice trader and pillar of the Sri Lankan business community, whose two sonsImsath Ahmed Ibrahim, 33, and Ilham Ahmed Ibrahim, 31allegedly bombed the breakfast buffets at the Cinnamon Grand and Shangri La hotels. Indian intelligence sources told the website that a third sonIjas Ahmed Ibrahim, 30,was also reportedly asked about the attack. Police are understood to be investigating possible links to overseas jihadist networks and training camps that had been hidden on a remote compound near Wanathawilluwa, on the islands west coast. The compound, believed to be linked to the chief suspects in the Easter Sunday bombings, the National Thawheed Jamaath group, was raided by police in January. Read more | Sri Lanka attacks Officers found 100kg of military grade explosives and arrested four suspects, all of whom were released on bail. One Sri Lankan minister alleged on Monday that political pressure had been applied to free them. Outside the Ibrahim family home in Colombo, neighbours told The Telegraph that Imsath was the business brains and Ilham was more aloof and awkward. "Imsath was the best of the sons. He runs the business and he drives good cars and wears Western brands, said one neighbour. "Ilham was not so bright and not well educated." At a copper factory owned by Imsath in the Colombo suburb of Wellampitiya, workers said they had not seen him for a week. Sri Lankan staff and supervisors at Colossus Ltd had been arrested for questioning leaving only abandoned Bangladeshi migrant workers.

Its Early, but Kamala Harris Isnt Betting on New Hampshire

Its Early, but Kamala Harris Isnt Betting on New HampshireGettyMANCHESTER, New HampshireSen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and New Hampshire Democratic primary voters seem to be in the same boat with each other: They might not be each others first choice, but theyre at least checking the requisite boxes just in case.Granite State voterswho relish their many opportunities to hear from presidential candidates directlyare being courted by almost two dozen of them, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who won the New Hampshire primary in 2016 and owns a commanding share of support here, according to several recent polls.Meanwhile, of the top-tier candidates, Harris so far seems to have her sights set furthest beyond the first-in-the-nation primary state. Of course, its still early into the Democratic presidential primary; one high-polling candidate, Joe Biden, is only just kicking off his campaign this week. But since kicking off her bid in February, Harris has been a far more frequent presence in other early primary states, notably South Carolina, which she has visited four times. She has also hit Iowa four times and launched a camp for organizers in the first caucus state, scheduled for this summer.This week, Harris made her second swing through New Hampshire. Since her last visit, Harris raised some eyebrows for suggesting during an appearance on The Daily Show that New Hampshire insiders assumed she wouldnt make the state a priority because it is overwhelmingly white. The first line of questioning I got was, Youre in New Hampshire, and we heard youre not going to come to New Hampshire. We thought you werent going to compete in New Hampshire, Harris told Trevor Noah. And what no one said, but the inference was, well, the demographic of New Hampshire is not who you are in terms of your race and who you are.After a town hall event at Keene State College on Tuesday, a reporter raised again the question to Harris of how important New Hampshire would be to her campaign.It is very important for me to be here, Harris responded. I intend on coming back frequently and making it a significant time when Im here.The first-term California senator did meet enthusiastic and good-size crowds during her quick trip through the state, where she appeared at town hall events at Keene and Dartmouth College, and spoke to Democratic activists in downtown Manchester.But there were few committed supporters in the crowdsat least not from New Hampshire, anyway. Mary Lou Szulborski, an attorney who stood out for her black Kamala Harris for the People shirt, took off work to make the 40-mile drive to the Keene town hall from Massachusetts, where she lives.I think anybody can win up here if they put the time in, she said, but noted that the New Hampshire primary might not be as central as it once was. The worlds changed, she said. Thirty years ago, this used to be the place to go. Youve gotta know where to cut your losses. Harris, she predicted, could do very well in Massachusetts.New Hampshire natives, meanwhile, guard their first-in-the-nation privilegesand the attention that comes with themas jealously as ever. Barely four months into the primary, local activists are already swapping tales of hour-long lunches with Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and personal calls from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).Keeping with state tradition, many voters came to the town halls to hear Harris out with an open mind. Joanna Jasperson, a voter from the central New Hampshire town of Lyme, said after Harris event at Dartmouth that she wasnt wowed by the candidateshe prefers Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of Indianabut felt she should show up and listen.Im giving people a chance, she said. Jaclyn Headings, a Democrat from Keene, was wearing a big Harris button on her lapel but said she wasnt totally committed to the candidate yet. She was impressed, however, with Harris town hall performance, which ran nearly an hour and covered questions on topics from health care to what she most enjoys doing outside of workits cookingto Americas standing in the world. She was spot on, very articulate, Headings said. You have to spend a lot of time here in New Hampshire to be heard, she added. I think shes putting in the work. I really do have the sense she has that vision.Other Democrats didnt begrudge Harris for pointing out New Hampshires whiteness, either. Shes right! exclaimed Harold Judd, a consultant in Concord, after hearing her speak at a bar in Manchester on Monday night. But Harris, who is of Indian and Jamaican descent, clearly sees a path to the Democratic nomination that depends on winning over voters of color in the partys coalition. South Carolina is seen as a bellwether for black voters, and Harris has invested significant resources there and rolled out fresh rounds of endorsements from state activists and politicians on a regular basis.According to Dante Scala, a professor of politics at the University of New Hampshire, Harris travel log is revealing of her strategy, which seems to invest in Iowa as the earliest state prize and banks on South Carolina and her home state of California, whose primary was moved up to March 3, to propel her to the nomination.Its a long way still, and campaigns have lots of time to adjust how they are allocating their resources, Scala told The Daily Beast. So far, at least, it appears [Harris] and her campaign arent devoting a lot of time to New Hampshirethe sort of time that suggests they see New Hampshire as vital to the nomination.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
