Sri Lanka announces nationwide emergency

Security forces have been conducting raids and making arrests.

    This will give police and the military extensive powers to detain and interrogate anyone without a court order.

    This comes after at least 290 people were killed in coordinated attacks across the country on Easter Sunday.
