The world watches in horror after following a string of terror attacks in Sri Lanka over this Easter weekend which has left 290 dead and 500 people injured. A government forensic crime analyst says the 6 near simultaneous attacks on 3 churches and 3 luxury hotels were carried out by 7 suicide bombers on Saturday and 3 other bombings later at sites outside Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo which are still under investigation. The Sri Lankan Health Minister believes a local terror group is responsible for the Easter Sunday bomb attacks in and around the Sri Lankan capital, but there may be foreign links as well. Earlier today 3 bombs were discovered, but while trying to defuse them, the bombs detonated, sending pedestrians fleeing in panic. No one was reported injured in the blast.
