Posted on 04/21/2019 4:13:27 AM PDT by Yo-Yo
At least 137 people were killed and hundreds more injured as several churches and hotels were rocked by simultaneous explosions on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka.
Eight explosions took place, including in three Christian churches and three hotels, some commonly used by foreign visitors. In addition to those who were killed at least another 500 were wounded, according to officials with police, the Colombo Hospital and St. Sebastian Church.
There were at least nine foreigners among the dead in Colombo, according to the officials. Two dual citizens of the U.S. and U.K. were among the dead, as well as one Portuguese citizen and two U.K. citizens, according to the Sri Lankan Ministry of Foreign Affairs. One American was also among the missing. All of the foreigners died in attacks on hotels.
President Donald Trump sent his condolences to the country in an early morning tweet from Mar-a-Lago, where he is spending the Easter holiday. He accidentally wrote "138 million people" were killed, however.

World leaders are searching for a motive.
Wow. That’s a lot of short circuits and “accidents”.
....guess they forgot how to spell bombs....
Somewhere, Ilhan Omar is grinning broadly.
Were they doing a lot of renovations out there? Shouldn’t jump to conclusions.
Source of bombings:
Excerpt: “According to reports, Sri Lanka’s police chief made a nationwide alert 10 days before today’s bomb attacks in the country that Islamic extremist suicide bombers planned to hit ‘prominent churches’.
Police chief Pujuth Jayasundara sent an intelligence warning to top officers on April 11 setting out the threat, sources say.
Excerpt: “A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo,’ said the alert.
The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that came to notice last year when it was linked to the vandalisation of Buddhist statues.”
Just because some people did something?
Radical is an entirely unnecessary modifier of muslim, as are extremist, murderous, and intolerant.
Didn’t miss a chance to slam Trump.
We can compare the stampede to virtue signal after the New Zealand disaster to what we will hear today.
They were all being renovated.
Some more people did some more somethings. Its just beyond human capabilities to solve such somethings.
Right. One of the local mussulman sects (NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama’ath) ) has been named - they are noted for violent acts
When will they ever wake up and come to grips with the truth?
Death count is up to 190.
some people did some thing, just ask Juicy Smollet
Some people did something
Caused by another computer glitch?
RIP for All the Victims and Prayers for the Families.
