Close Call: Pope Francis Sri Lanka Assassination? Cache Of Weapons Found In Very Conference Centre Visited By Pope!


Sri Lankan police on Tuesday seized weapons from a conference centre visited by the pope during his visit to the island after receiving a tip-off that the former president's family allowed arms to be stored there. Police said the family of Mahinda Rajapakse had allowed a private security firm to keep the weapons at the high-security complex in central Colombo where the pope met leaders of other faiths last week. They received complaints that the weapons, which were imported by the government, had been used to intimidate political rivals in the run-up to elections earlier this month in which Rajapakse lost power."They were supposed to have 3,473 weapons, but today we found only 151," police spokesman Ajith Rohana said in a statement on the discovery at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall complex. "We are investigating to whom these weapons had been issued, on what basis and for what purpose." Daily Mail Read More>>>>>>>>>
