Cricketers mourn after bomb blasts hit Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has been hit by massive tragedy on Sunday morning as six explosions have took place in three churches, killing at least 100 people.
Six near-simultaneous explosions hut 3 churches and three hotels frequented by tourists in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday morning, killing at least 129 people and injuring over 400 others, in one of the deadliest blasts in Sri Lanka’s history.
A Sri Lankan policeman confirmed that the blasts targeted St Anthony’s Church in Colombo, St Sebastian’s Church in the western coastal town of Negombo and another church in the eastern town of Batticaloa around 8.45 a.m. (local time) as the Easter Sunday mass were in progress.

No claims of responsibility so far. Clear targeting of Christians on Easter Sunday and luxury hotels to hit country economically by destroying tourism. #SriLanka
