"Unfortunately, we can confirm the news is true", Bestseller's head of communication Jesper Stubkier told Danish news agency Ritzau.

Security personnel inspect the interior of St. Sebastian's Church in Negombo on April 22, 2019, a day after the church was hit in series of bomb blasts targeting churches and luxury hotels in Sri Lanka.

Anders Hoch Povlsen, 46, owns Bestseller, an worldwide clothing chain, and is the largest shareholder of the online clothing retailer Asos, the BBC reports.

According to media reports, Povlsen's four children had been vacationing in Sri Lanka.

Anders Holch Povlsen said that his four children were visiting the country over the Easter holiday but the deadly attacks have taken lives of his three children. "We have no further comment and we ask that the family's privacy is respected at this time", he said.

Retail tycoon Anders Holch Povlsen is reputedly the biggest landowner in Scotland; previous year, he unveiled an ambitious plan to "re-wild" the Scottish Highlands and fix them from what he called centuries of negative human impact. It carries men's and women's contemporary brands such as Vero Moda, Jack & Jones, Only and Pieces.

Mr Holch Povlsen has a large property portfolio in Scotland, where he owns about a dozen estates including Aldourie Castle.

It's unclear which of Anders's young children (whose names are reportedly Agnes Povlsen, Alma Povlsen, Astrid Povlsen and son, Alfred Povlsen) were killed in the attack.

Authorities haven't revealed information on who may be responsible for the strikes, which targeted foreign tourists and Christians - marking a shift from the violence that fuelled a three-decade civil war on the Indian Ocean island.
