Sixteen people have been arrested for 'suspicious behavior'

A Sri Lankan police spokesperson said this morning that 16 people had been arrested from "a number of areas." The arrest locations stretch from the east to west coasts of the island nation.

At least one suspect was accused of having a terrorist link. Others had weapons and walkie-talkies seized.

It is not clear whether the 16 are an addition to the 60 apprehensions announced yesterday.
