Terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by “religious extremists” kills 200+

Terrorist attack in Sri Lanka by “religious extremists” kills 200+


The world woke up Easter Sunday to a series explosions that went off at three hotels and three churches, leaving more than 200 dead and 450 injured in Sri Lanka’s capitol Colombo.

Law enforcement has detained 13 suspects in connection with the bombings, as government officials cautiously state that the “terrorist attack” was carried out by “religious extremists,” and not radical Islamists.

Several U.S. citizens were among the 11 foreigners identified victims of the apparent coordinated terrorist attack.

“Attacks on innocent people gathering in a place of worship or enjoying a holiday meal are affronts to the universal values and freedoms that we hold dear, and demonstrate yet again the brutal nature of radical terrorists whose sole aim is to threaten peace and security,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in the statement.
