In Sri Lanka, a series of Easter Sunday bombings at luxury hotels and churches filled with worshippers has left at least 207 people dead. Hundreds more were wounded. Police say most of the eight bombings appear to have been suicide attacks. The government has blamed religious extremists, but so far no group has claimed responsibility. Sri Lanka’s Defense Minister says police have arrested seven suspects believed to be linked to the wave of bombings. Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said the attacks were carried out by a local group. There had been previous speculation that the attackers had not been Sri Lankan.
