One of Sri Lanka’s wealthiest people has been arrested on suspicion of helping his sons carry out the Easter Sunday terror attacks that left nearly 360 people dead.

Spice merchant Mohamed Ibrahim was arrested on Thursday afternoon, Sri Lanka’s former navy chief Jayanath Colombage, who now is a counter-terrorism expert at the Pathfinder Foundation, told the Associated Press.

He was one of the 58 people being questioned by police over the attacks.

Two of Mr Ibrahim’s sons, well educated brothers Inshaf and Ilham Ahamed Ibrahim, died in separate blasts at two Colombo hotels on Sunday.

Inshaf, 33, is believed to be the mastermind behind the deadly attacks, and died when he blew himself up at the Cinnamon Grand while standing in the hotel’s third-floor restaurant.

His younger brother Ilham blew himself up inside the Shangri-La.

Another of Mr Ibrahim’s sons was being questioned by police on Wednesday.

Holy shit. I mean, those aren't the first suicide bombers to be well off, educated, and successful, not by a long shot. But this is another level.
