A pipe bomb was found near Colombo’s airport, according to officials.

The bomb was found on a road near Bandaranaike International Airport and detonated by explosives experts, Air Force spokesman Gihan Seneviratne told Bloomberg.

Three police officers were killed while searching a suspected safe house in the outskirts of Colombo in the eighth explosion on Easter Sunday. The occupants of the house reportedly detonated explosives to prevent arrest.

The explosions tore through congregations at churches in Colombo, nearby Negombo and the eastern Sri Lankan town of Batticaloa.

The hotels hit in Colombo were the Shangri-La, the Kingsbury, the Cinnamon Grand and the Tropical Inn.
