Sri Lanka fears international terror link to Easter Sunday atrocities

Sri Lanka awoke Tuesday to a day of mourning as the country continued to reel over the devastating attacks which took some 310 lives, including many Christians celebrating Easter Sunday, CNN reports.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe tweeted early Tuesday morning, saying that the country grieved as one.

"Today as a nation we mourn the senseless loss of innocent lives this past Easter Sunday," he tweeted, spelling out his gratitude for the emergency and security forces who responded to the multiple bombings that tore through three churches, three luxury hotels and two other locations.

He added that it "is imperative that we remain unified as Sri Lankans in the face of this unspeakable tragedy."

The targets of the attacks -- churches and hotels catering to foreigners -- have figured in previous bombings in Asia and beyond in recent years.
