Seven people were arrested and three police officers were killed during a raid on a house in Colombo on Sunday, April 21, as the death toll from a rash of bombings at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka rose past 200, police and local media said.
In the deadliest violence in Sri Lanka in a decade, multiple explosions ripped through churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday leaving more than 200 dead and more than 400 others wounded.
The first six blasts that began around 8.45 am local time were coordinated and claimed most of the fatalities while two smaller blasts took place several hours later. The targets of the bombings were Catholic worshippers attending Easter prayers at churches in three cities and tourists. https://www.voanews.com/a/d-deadly-blasts-hit-sri-lankan-churches-on-easter/4884872.html
