At least 190 persons have been reported dead and nearly 460 injured in all six explosions were reported this morning at three churches in Kochchikade, Katana, and Batticaloa and three five-star hotels in Colombo, police said.

This appears to be economic terrorism.
The Catholic Churches were tagetted to hurt the Western Nations.
The hotels were targetted to discourage tourists who are providing a growing source of revenue.
The Govt appears to be clueless on how to deal with the situation.
I have seen a visibly shaken Mahinda Rajapaksa visiting sites while current leaders are holidaying in Singapore and Bentota.
While all this happening where was the God. The answer is there is no God.
MY DEEPEST SORROW AND SYMPATHY TO ALL MY SRILANKAN FRIENDS AND TO ALL PEOPLE OF THIS BEAUTIFUL ISLAND…😢 STAY STRONG…
