Deadly explosions strike churches and hotels across Sri Lanka

We lift our hearts and prayers to the people of Sri Lanka after co-ordinated terrorist attacks were carried out across the country on Easter morning.

Explosions in churches, hotels, and a residence killed 290 people and injured more than 500 people. 

The explosions hit three churches as people gathered for Easter services. Officials believe this may have been a targeted attack at the minority Christian population in Sri Lanka, who make up less than 10% of the country.

Police arrested 24 people following the attacks.
