Police have shut down the entrance and road leading to the main airport in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo after suspicious vehicle was seen in a nearby car park.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka's central bank employees were instructed to stay in host offices reported on a nearby explosion. Earlier, an explosion was heard in the town of Pogoda, 40 kilometers east of the capital.



This comes just days after the Easter Sunday bombings that rocked the country, killing 359 people and injuring over 500.
