Sri Lankan police say they exchanged fire with an armed group in the east of the country as they searched for those linked to last Sunday's bombings. A military spokesman said there was also an explosion as police conducted a raid in a town near Batticaloa. News agency AFP reported that 15 people were killed during raids. In a separate raid, police said explosives and uniforms of the Islamic State group were seized.
