12:10 pm
people is going to be difficult martin and you know the u.s. ambassador to sri lanka she's been making some statements saying that. the u.s. believes that some of those responsible for the attack still lawless i mean that's going to create a great deal of concern in the country. those lines dropping just a short while ago marty in the u.s. ambassador also say that he believes that those behind the sunday attacks might be plotting a father attacks and that in itself is something that has sent a lot of concern as those news lines break now bear in mind that a few days ago the united states there was an evacuation order for children school
12:11 pm
age children so all those pointing to the level of concern in the united states about the very real possibility of further attacks now in terms of the sri lankan authorities we haven't heard any alerts specific alerts there have been ongoing warnings obviously for people to stay alert to keep an eye out for what's going on we're hearing all the time that the police and security forces are continuing with their raids there's a lot of things being found people being rounded up explosives because even in the last few hours of interest being brought in so everyone in a very high state of alert martin you know fernando is live in the sri lankan capital thank you. strange socialist party may have won the general election but it lacks the votes to govern on its own prime minister paid to resign his party will need to build

a coalition but that could take some time and there's no guarantee of success has our report from madrid. a new day for spanish politics but no certainty over what kind of government will come out of sunday's election spaniards may have turned out in force to vote in one of the most divisive elections but it was the socialists who came out on top but i mean i think it's a good result and honestly i didn't expected i thought the right wing was going to win. i think the results are stable they almost have a stable majority and this can be good. all eyes are now on which direction the socialist leader pedro sanchez will take so far they have said they would attempt to form a minority government but it's still early days so what happens next well for a start there are further elections to contest local ones in this country and the european elections that are sanches might be playing his cards close to his chest wants to try to win the games that. there is the option of going into coalition
12:13 pm
government with george she could be made by partnering with the center right citizens party but it is an unpopular option for the socialists and the follow is joining with a hard left put their most would avoid that scenario but then they would need to make deals with cattle an independent test another a popular choice it's really awkward is problematic for them they have to do a lot of a foundation to the to their followers to their members the fact of they are that they are negotiating with the caseloads so they will try they will try to avoid the socialist may have some time but no one is expecting a quick results from this historic election but it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome difficulties spain has had problems with coalitions in the past and it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome the difficulties to create a stable and effective government sunny diagonal al-jazeera madrid. still to come
