The statement emailed to media further read that the 'Ellalan Force' was able to blast bombs despite heavy security arrangements made by the government.

"The Sinhalese must understand situation clearly and think about why the 'Ellalan Force' continue their attacks," the statement titled 'A Stern Warning of Revenge,' said.

The statement went on to say that the only way to stop such attacks was stopping attacks on Tamil innocent civilians.
