Doubt is being cast over claims made by Sri Lanka's deputy defence minister that the Easter Sunday bombings were in retaliation for the Christchurch mosque attacks. A spokesperson for the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, says New Zealand has not yet seen any intelligence upon which such an assessment might be based.
