Event details

At least 25 people were killed and more than 150 people were injured when explosions rocked at least three churches and two hotels in Sri Lanka on Sunday morning as Christians celebrated Easter, authorities said. The bodies of the dead have been received at Colombo National Hospital, according to hospital sources. Sri Lankan police spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekera confirmed the explosions, some of which happened in the capital of Colombo. Most of those injured were taken to Colombo National Hospital, according to hospital officials. There have been "many casualties including foreigners," tweeted Sri Lankan MP Harsha de Silva. De Silva said two locations of the explosions were Kochchikade church and Shangri-la hotel in Kingsbury, Colombo. "Horrible scenes, I saw many body parts strewn all over," De Silva said after visiting the scene. He said emergency crews are at the scenes operating in "full force." Sri Lankan security personnel keep watch outside a church in Colombo after a blast Sunday. De Silva said an emergency government meeting has been called, and rescue operations are underway.
