DEATH TOLL from Sri Lanka Easter Sunday terrorist attack rises to 290 with more than 500 wounded. A 9th improvised bomb was also defused near Colombo airport. Another blast occurred near the capital’s Zoo which claimed 2 lives.
Indian commentator says the Sri Lanka attacks were similar to the highly coordinated 11/26 Islamic terrorist hotel attacks in Mumbai, India, but on a much larger scale. He concludes that these sophisticated attacks had to have been planned outside of Sri Lanka by known terrorist groups from either Pakistan or ISIS/Al Qaeda. Both ISIS and Al Qaeda are known for suicide bombings which were part of the Sri Lanka attacks.
