Sri Lanka blasts: Injured victims arrive to Colombo hospitals

A series of deadly bombings in Sri Lanka became one of the worst acts of violence the country has seen in over a decade. The last time such high profile attacks happened were during a protracted civil war with separatist militias.

On Easter Sunday, a series of apparently coordinated bombings happened at several Christian churches and luxury hotels in the South Asian nation. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings. With the death toll standing at over 150 and rising, and reports of more explosions coming in, Sri Lanka is experiencing one of the worst acts of organized violence in its history. And this is a strong statement, considering how much bloodshed that history has had.
