New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern today said that they were not alert of any intelligence signifying that Easter Sunday attack in Sri Lanka was in vengeance for deadly shootings on a mosques in Christchurch, Reuters reported.

State Minister of Defense, Ruwan Wijewardene, told parliament on Tuesday that an early investigation had exposed the bombings on churches and hotels, which killed 321 people, had been carried out in revenge for deadly shootings in two New Zealand mosques on March 15.

Security experts and analysts, however, have questioned whether the organized bomb attacks could have been planned in such a short period.

“We haven’t received anything officially nor have we received any intelligence reports that corroborate what has been said in Sri Lanka,” PM Ardern told reporters at a media session in Auckland.
