New CCTV footage shows one of the Sri Lanka Muslim terrorists nervously shuffling back and forth before deciding to blow himself up at the Cinnamon Grand hotel.
Wealthy brothers Inshaf and Ilham Ibrahim walked into the luxury Shangri-La and Cinnamon Grand hotels and detonated their suicide vests as guests were eating breakfast on Easter Sunday.
The chilling footage has captured the final moments of the mastermind behind the Sri Lanka massacre in which 359 people were murdered by Muslim terrorists in a series of suicide bomb blasts targeting Christian worshipers, hotel guests, and foreign tourists.
A camera in the Cinnamon Grand’s packed Taprobane restaurant shows Muslim terrorist Inshaf Ibrahim hovering just inches away from diners just after 9am on Sunday as they ate breakfast.
Inshaf’s younger brother Ilham had detonated a bomb in Colombo’s Shangri-la hotel minutes earlier.
Another bomber blew himself up inside the Shangri-la hotel as terrified locals and tourists tried to flee the carnage from the first blast.
The brothers are the sons of a wealthy spice merchant named Mohamed Ibrahim. Another of his sons is now being questioned by police.
Mohamed Ibrahim owned the Colombo home where another bomb went off after Sunday’s initial attacks. His daughter-in-law blew herself up as police closed in, murdering three officers.
Mohamed Ibrahim is one of the 58 Muslim terrorists being questioned by police over the attacks.
His spice company Ishana Exports, which boasts about being the largest exporter of spices in Sri Lanka since 2006, turned him into a multi-millionaire.
The suicide bombers are thought to have used “Mother of Satan” TATP, chemically known as triacetone triperoxide, an explosive made from commonly available household ingredients including nail polish remover – acetone – and hydrogen peroxide.
According to reports, they made the stuff in a copper factory in Wellampitiya, a suburb of Colombo.
The factory belonged to ‘calm and devout Muslim’ terrorist Inshaf Ahamad, who is believed to have blown himself up at the Shangri-La Hotel.
An explosion occurred in a town east of the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo, on Thursday but there were no casualties, a police spokesman said.
Spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said police were investigating the blast on empty land behind the magistrate’s court in Pugoda, 40 km (25 miles).
“There was an explosion behind the court, we are investigating,” he said, adding it was not a controlled explosion like other blasts in recent days.
Israel’s Counter-Terrorism Bureau on Thursday issued a travel warning for Israelis planning to visit Sri Lanka, saying there was a “high and concrete” chance of a terror attack.
The Bureau has set a Level 2 travel warning, which is the second highest warning. Israeli travelers should leave the island as soon as possible, and those planning to visit were advised to cancel their trips.
