Inside factory where Sri Lanka jihadists plotted to slaughter Christians: 'Mother of Satan' explosive used in attacks 'were made in workshop owned by one of the suicide bombers'

The bombs are thought to have been made in a copper factory in Wellampitiya, a suburb of Colombo.

It was owned by businessman and father-of-four Inshaf Ahamad, who blew himself up at a hotel on Sunday.

Police raided the copper factory last night and took nine suspects - including the manager - into custody.

At least 290 people were killed and 500 wounded after eight explosions hit hotels and churches

This is the factory where the Easter Sunday attacks were masterminded and the 'mother of Satan' suicide bombs are believed to have been built, MailOnline can reveal.

The copper factory, in Wellampitiya, a north-eastern suburb of Colombo, belonged to 'calm and devout' Inshaf Ahamad, who is understood to have blown himself up at a hotel frequented by foreigners in the atrocity.

Inshaf's brother-in-law said the businessman drove a brand new white Land Cruiser and came from a middle class background.

Speaking to MailOnline, Ashkhan Alamdeen, 29, said he had brought shame their family.

'They have ruined our family and taken the lives of hundreds of people from all over the world,' Ashkhan said.

'We had no idea what they were planning. If we had, we would have immediately told the police.'

Inshaf is said to have attacked the Cinnamon Grand hotel where retired fireman Bill Harrop and his wife Sally were killed, while his brother Ilham targeted the Shangri-La, massacring British lawyer Ben Nicholson’s wife and two children.
