Senior officials deliberately withheld intelligence about possible attacks on Sri Lanka, where a rash of suicide-bombings on Easter Sunday killed atleast 359 people, the leader of parliament said on Wednesday. "Some top intelligence officials hid the intelligence information purposefully. Information was there, but the top brass security officials did not take appropriate actions," Lakshman Kiriella, who is also minister of public enterprise, told parliament.
