At least 156 people were killed and some 400 injured in the six explosions that struck places of Christian worship and high-end hotels across Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. The targets, three churches and three hotels, were mostly concentrated in and around the commercial capital Colombo, except for one church located on the opposite side of the island in Batticaloa. No group has claimed responsibility so far.
