At least 129 killed in Easter terrorist massacre in Sri Lanka

More than six explosions ripped through the churches and hotels of Colombo and Negombo in Sri Lanka targeting Easter services on Sunday. At least 129 people were killed, including at least 8 foreigners, and hundreds more injured. Two the attacks were attributed to suicide bombers. No group has taken responsibility for the massacre but the police believe that returning Islamic State fighters may have been responsible. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is chairing an emergency meeting.
