There were reports of a bomb on Galle Road, near Dickman’s. Sam went down the street to confirm and there was indeed a car bomb with at least one person obviously dead and melted into the car. It seems like there were two people killed. I believe he has some photos and could file a much more comprehensive report later. This is speculation, but I’m unclear as to why they would bomb Dickman’s road, though Douglas Devananda (Tamil MP) does live there. I occassionally work in an office just up the street and I never thought that street would be a target. There is a school nearby and houses of a few people I know. I’m guessing traffic is buggered around there. Suppose leave comments if you have any information.
I’ve heard the bodyguard died, and that they laid a claymore. A freaking claymore on Dickman’s Road.
