Sri Lankan defence secretary resigned on Thursday taking responsibility for the suicide bomb attacks on Sunday as the country remains tense in the aftermath. 

Hemasiri Fernando said that while there had been no failure on his own part, he was taking responsibility for failures of some institutions he headed as the secretary of defence. 

He was asked to resign yesterday following reports that security agencies failed to act on intelligence inputs about the attacks. 

In a related development, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed one of the suicide bombers involved spent time in Australia on a student and a graduate skilled visa.
