DUBAI (Reuters) - SriLankan Airlines' chief executive Visual Gunatilleka said on Monday that the carrier had a 10 percent increase in cancellations last week and expects that number to go up.

He was speaking to Reuters in Dublin at a travel conference in reference to the April 21 attacks on hotels and churches that killed more than 250 people.
