President Maithripala Sirisena said that security forces would eradicate terrorism and restore stability before a presidential election due for year-end, vowing to bring to heel all terrorists linked to the Easter Sunday suicide attacks.

In an interview with Reuters, the President said that all active members of the group have been identified and now it's a case of arresting them.

The President said there were a further 25 to 30 active members linked to the bombings still at large and that he believed Islamic State was behind the April 21st attacks.
