Sri Lanka’s president announced an investigation Sunday into allegations made by a British television documentary that his current spy chief was complicit in the country’s worst attack against civilians.

Ranil Wickremesinghe said he was naming a retired Supreme Court judge to probe accusations that Suresh Sallay, the head of the State Intelligence Service (SIS), orchestrated the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks.

The documentary aired this week featured a political insider who accused Sallay of complicity in the bombings by Islamist extremists at three churches and three hotels, which killed 279 people including 45 foreigners.
