IED is believed to have been locally manufactured.

An improvised pipe bomb discovered close to Colombo’s main airport was successfully defused by the Sri Lanka airforce, police said.

A police source told AFP that a “homemade” pipe bomb had been found late Sunday on a road leading towards the main terminal, which remains open with heavy security after deadly attacks on churchs and hotels.

Airforce spokesperson Group Captain Gihan Seneviratne said the IED was believed to be locally manufactured.
