PM Imran Khan condemns terror attacks in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka church bomb blasts live updates The first blast was reported from the capital Colombo while the second was in Negombo

This was then followed by a statement from Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who confirmed that security services had conveyed "prior information of the attack" to the government, but said that ministers had not been informed.

Police have not said which site was worst hit. It said the measure would be confined to dealing with terrorism and would not impinge on freedom of expression.

Lebanon-based Shiite movement Hezbollah said on Monday that it strongly condemned Sunday's deadly bombings in Sri Lanka and called on people of all faiths to unite in order to counter the common threat. National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri-Lanka documented the growing number of attacks on Christians in 2018, saying there were 67 from January to September.

"Terrorists may attack with little or no warning", the updated travel warning reads. "The IGP was informed on April 9", Senaratne said.

Not much is known about the NTJ, a radical Muslim group that has been linked to the vandalizing of Buddhist statues. "There may be worldwide links to them", he added.

Sri Lanka on Sunday afternoon was rocked by eight blasts targeting luxury hotels and churches in the capital city Colombo.

The first explosions were reported at St Anthony's Church in Colombo and St Sebastian's Church at Katuwapitiya in the town of Negombo.

The three hotels hit were the Shangri-La Colombo, Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo and the Cinnamon Grand Colombo.

In Colombo, the capital, blasts were reported at St. Anthony's Shrine and three high-end hotels.

Early in the afternoon, police reported there had been two more explosions.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday identified two more individuals killed in the blasts on Sunday.

"Colombo - I am in constant touch with Indian High Commissioner in Colombo".

In addition to those who were killed another 500 were wounded, according to officials with police, the Colombo Hospital and St. Sebastian Church.

Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera tweeted the bomb blasts killed "many innocent people" and seemed "to be a well coordinated attempt to create murder, mayhem and anarchy".
