The blasts, reported to have occurred at churches in Kochchikade, Negombo and Batticaloa, targeted worshippers as they attended Easter services. Additional blasts ripped through three hotels, the Shangri La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury Hotel, all in the capital, Colombo, according to state broadcaster SLRC.

At least nine foreigners are among at least 50 dead at the Colombo National Hospital following the explosions, according to hospital sources. In total, more than 260 people injured in the blasts have been admitted to the hospital in the wake of the attack.

More than 35 people were injured in the explosion at Katuwapitiya Church in Negombo, while more than 300 people have been hospitalized following the blast at the Zion Church in Batticaloa.

That’s horrible. People underestimate the Christanophobia in other countries.

To kill people like this on a day and place where they’re only searching for hope and inner peace is beyond heartless and inhuman.

Why are *some* religious people like this?

I just don't get it - don't the gods these people claim to idolize express the need for acceptance and love? 

So sad. 

And omg :runhug:  I  hope your friend is okay @VOLANTIS

My best friend's mum (my second mum, I call her mum), was supposed to be at one of the churches bombed today. Fortunately she slept in late and went to one that was closer to home. This attack has left me feeling sick.

Will the prime minister of NZ dress up as Jesus in regards to this tragedy? Christians are being killed daily and no one bats an eye for some reason. Truly sad.

this tragedy did not happen in NZ though :triggered: why would the prime minister of NZ dress up as Jesus? 

I am far from being a superstitious person, but the fire of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris at the beginning of Easter Week did turn out to be a bad omen :ohno:

This is terrible. This ALWAYS happens on Easter Sunday. Every single year, in some part of the world. I don't understand why it keeps happening.
