Sri Lanka has warned that another terror attack is imminent and this time, it could be carried out by Jihadis dressed as soldiers. According to security sources, the Islamist extremists behind Easter Sunday's deadly attacks are planning more attacks soon. They are targeting five locations for further attacks to be carried out either Sunday (yesterday) or Monday (today) and the terrorists intend to disguise in military uniforms. "There could be another wave of attacks," the head of the police ministerial security division (MSD) said in a letter to the government and other officials seen by news agency Reuters on Monday. The letter added: "The relevant information further notes that persons dressed in military uniforms and using a van could be involved in the attacks." Meanwhile, the sister of the suspected mastermind behind Easter Sunday's multiple bomb attack has revealed that up to 18 members of her family have died or gone missing since the Easter bombings.Mohamed Hashim Mathaniya, who is the sister of Zahran Hashim, the suicide bomber who blew himself up in Shangri-La hotel on Easter Sunday, has said her relatives have been targeted by police raids since her brother Zahran Hashim blew himself up on April 21.Zahran's father, her brothers, and her brother-in-law died in a shootout at an "ISIS safe house" on Friday, in which at least six children died.Speaking to CNN, Mathaniya said: "Five men went missing after the attacks. They were my three brothers, my father, and my sister's husband. "It did not hit me until I saw the bodies of the men and women. When they said six children, I thought whether they could be the people related to me."
