Colombo, April 25: A minor explosion was reported on Thursday in Pugoda, 40 km east of Sri Lankan capital Colombo.

The blast took place four days after the Easter Sunday bombings in 359 people had lost their lives.

The police said that explosion was reported in a garbage dump behind the Pugoda Magistrate’s Court, reports the Daily Mirror newspaper.

In the suicide bombings, hundreds of others were also injured in what is being described as the deadliest day in Sri Lanka since the end of the civil war a decade ago.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the coordinated bombings at churches and high-end hotels across the country.
