KUWAITCITY/SRILANKA(IAMINKUWAIT) : Sri Lanka's government on Tuesday blocked social networking sites including Facebook, WebSAP and Webber after users were denied access to stop spreading rumors following bombings in churches and hotels on Easter Day.
Many residents welcomed the decision to end the ban, seeking more information on the situation, while the capital, Colombo, is recovering from the effects of the bombings.
Security forces have kept a high level of alert amid intelligence reports that Islamist militants are likely to launch attacks before the start of the holy month of Ramadan, which is likely to take place on Monday (May 6th).
Dozens of militants have been arrested since the April 21 bombings that killed 250 people, including 42 foreigners.
