Bombings in Sri Lanka – level 2
On Sunday morning, there were at least eight explosions in Sri Lanka. More than 300 people died and 500 people were injured. This was the worst act of violence since the end of the Sri Lankan Civil War in 2009.
People first thought that a Sri Lankan Islamist militant group carried out the attacks, but now people believe that more organisations did it. ISIS said that it carried out the attacks, but it did not give any proof. One Sri Lankan politician thinks that this was revenge for the shootings at two mosques in New Zealand last month.
Some media also says that it is possible that police knew about these planned attacks.
