Easter Day bomb blasts at three Sri Lankan churches and four hotels killed more than 200 people and wounded more than 400, hospital and police officials said.
Sri Lankan Prime Minister condemned the attacks, and warned of some immediate consequences. The explosions led to an immediate clampdown, with the government declaring a curfew and blocking access to most major social media and messaging sites. It was unclear when the curfew would be lifted.
