Fresh details have emerged about Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed, a former UK student who is suspected of carrying out a Sri Lanka suicide bombing.
Mohamed travelled to the UK on 1 January 2006 and returned to Sri Lanka on 29 September 2007, Sky sources have said. He made another trip to Britain in 2008.
New CCTV images have emerged showing Mohamed outside the Tropical Inn Hotel in Dehiwala before detonating his device on Easter Sunday.
It comes as police in Sri Lanka issued an appeal for information about three women and one man suspected of involvement in the bombings.
Police released images of the suspects who appeared to be in their 20s, but did not elaborate on how they may have been involved. Mohamed is believed to be one of nine who carried out a series of
blasts targeting churches and hotels in the country, killing around 250 people – including eight Britons – and injuring more than 500.
Mohamed, who was born on 18 December 1982, is believed to have studied in the southeast of England at some point between 2006 and 2007.
He later did a postgraduate course in Australia, before returning to settle in Sri Lanka.
