The pregnant wife of a Sri Lankan suicide bomber has detonated a suicide vest killing her self, her children, and police officers.
The wife of the suspected mastermind behind the Easter Sunday bombings detonated the explosives as police raided the family’s Colombo home, Sri Lanka’s Deputy Defence Minister Ruwan Wijewardene said.
At the centre of the plot that has devastated the peaceful Southeast Asian nation are two brothers, according to reports. They were the sons of a rich spice merchant, and they lived in one of the most lavish mansions in their wealthy suburb in Colombo.
The mastermind of the suicide bomb plot is now believed to have been Inshaf Ibrahim, in his 30s, who owned a copper factory. He is said to have detonated his own explosive device at the Shangri-La hotel, by the busy breakfast buffet, a source close to the family told reporters.
When the lavish and sprawling Ibrahim home was raided shortly afterwards, the pregnant wife of one of the brothers was in the home wearing a suicide vest, Mr Wijewardene said according to the ABC.
As police arrived, the woman reportedly detonated the vest, killing herself, her two children and three police officers, reports.
Ilham Ibrahim had expressed extremist views and been involved in meetings with local group Tawheed Jamaath, an Islamist group suspected of involvement and planning of the bombings.
His brother, Inshaf, was publicly known to be more moderate in his views. Married to the daughter of a wealthy jewellery manufacturer, he had given donations to local struggling families.
Their father Mohamed Ibrahim, a wealthy spice trader, admired pillar of the community, and father of nine, has been arrested in the wake of the attacks.
Most of the suicide bombers were from educated, wealthy families, according to Mr Wijewardene. Some had law degrees and all were Sri Lankan, he added.

“That’s a worrying factor in this because some of them have studied in various other countries,” he said.
“They hold degrees. We believe one of the suicide bombers studied in the UK and later on did his postgraduate in Australia before coming back to Sri Lanka.”
Speaking in Townsville, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed one of the attackers had spent time living in Australia.
“I can confirm the suicide bomber had been in Australia,” Mr Morrison said.

“They departed in early 2013. That individual had been here on a student and graduate skilled visa. They had no visa (since).”
The man had also held a spouse and child visa at a time. After leaving in 2013, they didn’t return to Australia.
“It’s a matter of an ongoing investigation so I wouldn’t say anything other than what (I have).”
