Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle and several others were killed in a bomb blast on Weliweriya [Updated with Video]

Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle was killed following the blast in Welliweriya this morning. The blast occurred when he was about to flag off a marathon run as part of a Sinhala New Year celebration event. Minister Jeyaraj was the special chief guest for the event.

The LTTE suicide cadre who targeted Minister Fernandopulle had come in the guise of a marathon runner participating at the New Year sports event, Weliweriya police said. Over ten people have reportedly been killed in the blast.

Several other were also among the killed ones including the National Athletic coach Lakshaman De Alwis and ace marathon runner K.A. Karunaratne represented Sri Lanka at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
