At least 138 Killed in Sri Lanka in Easter Attacks
Monday, 22 April 2019 10:51 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Sri Lanka has imposed a curfew, effective immediately, following a series of Easter Sunday explosions at churches and hotels.

The government says it has also blocked access to major social media and messaging apps to prevent the spread of misinformation and rumors.

At least 138 people were killed and hundreds more hospitalized from injuries in near simultaneous blasts that rocked three churches and three luxury hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter, a security official told The Associated Press, in the worst violence in the South Asian country since its civil war ended a decade ago.

Two of the blasts were suspected to have been carried out by suicide bombers, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak with reporters. Worshippers and hotel guests were among the dead, the official said.

‹Later in the day, a Sri Lankan military spokesman has confirmed two more explosions just outside the capital.

The spokesman, Brig. Atapattu, says a seventh blast occurred at a guesthouse in Dehiwala, killing at least two people. Atapattu says an eighth blast occurred in Dematagoda on the outskirts of Colombo. He did not have details on the Dematagoda blast.
