New Footage Shows Final Hours Of Sri Lanka Suicide Bomber Praying In Mosque

Chilling new footage shows the final hours of one of the Sri Lanka bombers as he prepared to carry out a devastating terror attack on Easter Sunday.

CCTV footage shows Mohammed Nasar Mohammed Azar, 34, praying, chatting on the phone and scoping out his target before he blew himself up in the Zion church in Batticaloa.

Azar's bomb killed 28 people in the church and more than 70 others were injured in the blast.

But harrowing new footage reveals he spent hours before the attack readying himself in a nearby mosque.


The security camera footage, obtained by Sky News, captures several hours of the terrorist's intense build up to the bombing as he arrived in the east coast city at around 2am.

He is caught on camera pulling up outside the Jami Us-Salam mosque in Batticaloa, just minutes away from the Zion Church, carrying two bags.

For two hours starting at 3.13am Azar paces up and down outside the church and checks his phone.

At one point a police car drives near Azar, but he doesn't seem fazed and the car drives off.

Azar eventually entered the mosque at 5.42am when the building was opened and spent several hours in prayer before slipping off to change into an outfit used in the bombing.

Just after 9.30am when the first bombs have already been set off in Colombo, Azar is caught on camera striding out of the mosque and disappearing out of shot in the direction of the nearby church.

He appears to pull out his phone and send a message before walking around the corner to his death.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
