Sri Lanka Gun Battle With Militants Kills 15, U.S. Pulls Citizens Out

According to Reuters, a gun battle between troops and suspected Islamist militants on Sri Lanka’s east coast left 15 dead, after suicide bombers killed more than 250 people on the island.

The shootout at a safe house erupted on Friday in a town south of Batticaloa, the site of one of the Easter Sunday blasts which have been claimed by Islamic State.

The government said that the attacks on three churches and four hotels, were carried out by nine well-educated Sri Lankans.
