A terrorist, who had attempted to set off explosives targeting a group of Sri Lankan Army troops deployed on a peacekeeping mission in Mali, has been arrested by troops.

The terrorist who had behaved in a suspicious manner as a convoy heading from Gravo to Mopti had tried to flee as troops attempted to search him.

In a search operation conducted subsequently, a bomb weighing 35 kg and a remote control device which was to be used to detonate the bomb were found.

The Army Media Spokesperson said that Sri Lanka Army’s experience in defeating terrorists was helpful in averting what could have been a massive disaster.
