Sri Lanka president: Islamic State should leave the 'country alone'



Sri Lanka’s president has said it’s possible that a foreign mastermind was behind the Easter Sunday attacks which killed at least 250 people.

He told Sky News that he would not resign and referred to George W Bush after 9/11, in tackling the terror threat.

Maithripala Sirisena spoke to Sky’s Deborah Haynes as he admitted that Daesh could be attempting a new strategy.
