    207 Dead, Including Several Americans, After Explosions Across Sri Lanka on Easter I5OK6

    From ABC News

    Mark Osborne, Dragana Jovanovic and Bill Hutchinson of ABC News wrote:


    At least 207 people were killed and hundreds more injured on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka when attackers unleashed an apparently coordinated series of suicide bombings that simultaneously targeted Christian churches and luxury hotels, and sent a wave a terror across the globe.

    The explosions took place miles apart, and the targets included three Christian churches holding Easter services and three hotels, some commonly used by Western tourists. In addition to those who were killed, at least 450 were wounded, according to officials with police, the Colombo Hospital, and St. Sebastian Church.

    Most of the explosions were detonated by suicide bombers, according to the Sri Lankan Defense Ministry.

    At least 11 foreigners were confirmed killed in the attacks, including two victims who were dual citizens of the United States and the United Kingdom. One American was also among the missing, officials said.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed Sunday that "several U.S. citizens were among those killed."

    All of the foreigners died in attacks on hotels in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, an island nation off the southern tip of India in the Indian Ocean, according to the officials.

    This is very tragic news. I will have follow-up posts in regard to this developing story. For now, I send my deepest condolences to the families and friends of these victims.

    Just Saying.

    Indeed: absolutely senseless tragedy - especially at a time when all these people were no doubt expecting to be celebrating with their loved ones :'( .

    My deepest condolences to their friends and families.
