Three Christian churches and three luxury hotels have been attacked in Sri Lanka this morning resulting in more than 130 deaths.
Buddhism is the state religion in Sri Lanka accounting for 70% of the population, Hindus make up 12% with Islam and Christianity comprising 9% and 7% respectively. No group has yet claimed responsibility.
A civil war between government forces and separatist Tamil Tigers ended in 2009. The war lasted 26 years and cost at least 70,000 lives. There were some attacks on mosques last year by Buddhists but that would not account for this Easter day attack on Christians.
So far every commentator on the news channels is carefully avoiding blaming the 'religion of peace'.
