NZ Dy PM slams Sri Lanka-Christchurch terror link claim

Colombo, April 30 (IANS): New Zealand’s Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters on Tuesday criticised suggestions that Sri Lanka’s Easter Sunday suicide bombings were in retaliation to the Christchurch mosque shootings, saying his country was being “misused”.

Sri Lanka’s State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene last week said that according to early investigations, the Easter carnage which claimed the lives of 253 people had been in revenge for the shootings at two New Zealand mosques on March 15 which killed 50 people.
