At least 15 bodies, including six children, were discovered during an overnight raid and gunfight on the east coast of Sri Lanka. Two suspected Islamic State gunmen and a civilian were killed in the shootout. A police spokesman said that three suspected suicide bombers were among the 15 dead after the gunfight.

The gun battle near Sainthamaruthu in Ampara began Friday night after police tipped off soldiers to a suspected safe house, where militants set off three explosions triggering fire, the military said. The authorities are on a lookout for 140 people believed linked to ISIS, which claimed responsibility for the Easter Sunday suicide bombings that killed 253 people last Sunday. Nearly 10,000 soldiers were deployed across the Indian Ocean island state to carry out searches and provide security for religious centres, the military said.

The military says security forces have recovered explosives, detonators, “suicide kits,” military uniforms and Islamic State group flags during the raids.
