Suicide bomber was in Sri Lankan custody prior to attack

One of the Sri Lanka suicide bombers was previously arrested by police and then released, a senior government official told CNN.
Ilham Ahmed Ibrahim — one of two sons of a spice tycoon who blew themselves up in the attacks — detonated a device at the Cinnamon Grand hotel in Colombo, the official told CNN.
“It was the suicide bomber of the Cinnamon Grand bomb attack who was released earlier,” the official said. Ilham Ahmed Ibrahim and his brother Imsath Ahmed Ibrahim were previously identified as two of the suicide bombers in the attacks which left at least 359 people dead across the country.
