Sri Lanka's Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne held a news conference in Colombo after a cabinet security meeting.

Senaratne said the country's police chief wrote a letter on April 9 warning of possible "acts of terror". In the letter the police chief informed officials to "tighten security for VIPs".

Seraratne said the cabinet only had access to reports of possible attacks after the assaults.
