    No one was killed one person injured.

    Ifthis is the work of the LTTE, then its a sorry attemp.

    Conspiracy theory anyone?

    Well.. either the Govt or the LTTE.. I don’t see the UNP as the type to plant bombs. The Govt isn’t going to gain anything except panic.. The only ppl who will benefit from that is the LTTE, hence the most likely candidates.

    They have had a series of fowled attempts like

    * the D. M. Dasanayake killing [apparently mistaken the motorcade… original target was Govt Whip Jeyraj Fernandopulle]..
    * then the blast at Slave Island [obviously for a high profile target.. not a bus carrying 13 soldiers to hospital]..
    * and lastly the Blast at a Phone Booth in Fort.. [attempt on Roshan Goonatilleke.. totally gone wrong including timing.

    So this also could be an addition to the list of screw-ups.. maybe it was meant to be at peak time… or maybe they are just starting little by little to cause havoc and pandemonium their so used to creating..

    If the blast does no damage then the LTTE gets little out of it. On teh other hand, given that the Chief Justice is at logerheads with the government, the blasts could be used to stir up public anger to get the government to somehow overrule the Supreme Court on matters such as chekc points, parking, searching houses etc, where recent rulings have irritated the government.

    Yes.. I heard abt that… they might even try Jeyraj for Contempt of Court. There are speculations that the Blasts in Fort (Railway and Near Regal Cinema) are planned.. but we’ll never know.. Like everything else in this country.

    After all we’re still to hear the facts on Mahesvaran’s killing as well.
