ABSTRACT
The first suicide bombing in the Sri Lankan capital Colombo in nearly three years threatens to shatter the fragile peace. Five people were killed and 11 wounded when a suicide bomber blew herself up in a police station in the capital's high-security zone, an attack believed to be aimed at moderate Tamil politician Douglas Devananda, a vocal opponent of the rebels. In addition to that, the article also presents data on, political and economic risk, in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
