Victims of Sri Lanka Easter Attacks

The first mass funeral was held on 1 day after the deadly attacks in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka marked an official day of mourning for the victims of the attacks.

Most victims were Sri Lankan nationals, including scores of Christians attending Easter Sunday church services.

Around 38 foreign nationals were among the dead, with another 14 unaccounted for. The death toll includes at least 8 UK citizens and at least 11 Indian nationals.

The mass funeral for about 30 victims took place at St Sebastian’s church in Negombo, north of Colombo, which was one of the places targeted in Sunday’s attacks. Another funeral service was scheduled for later on Tuesday.

A moment of silence was also observed at 08:30 on Tuesday, reflecting the same time the first of six bombs detonated.
