COLOMBO: An improvised pipe bomb discovered close to Colombo’s main airport was successfully diffused by the Sri Lanka air force, police said.

A police source told AFP that a homemade pipe bomb had been found late Sunday on a road leading towards the main terminal, which remains open with heavy security after deadly attacks on churches and hotels.

Air force spokesperson Group Captain Gihan Seneviratne said the IED was believed to be locally manufactured.
