Bomb hoax causes panic in Colombo

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 30 May 2007, 22:08 GMT]
An abandoned auto rickshaw with a suspicious parcel inside, found close to a Buddhist Shrine along Olcott Mawatte, created panic in Fort area Colombo Wednesday evening at peak traffic time, sources in Colombo said. Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers and Policemen rushed to the site blocking traffic, but the bomb disposal squad discovered a number of bricks inside the parcel.

Earlier Wednesday, 20 Tamils were arrested in a cordon and search operation in Ratmalana and Mt.Lavinia areas.
