President says heads of security forces to change within 24 hrs


President Maithripala Sirisena says that he hopes to affect changes among the heads of the country’s security forces within the next 24 hours.

He stated this during his address to the nation, in the wake of Sunday’s devastating bombings targeting multiple churches and hotels in Sri Lanka.

The President said that measures would be taken to restructure the Police Department and the security forces in near future in order to prevent such acts of terrorism.
