3 more killed as 8th explosion hits Sri Lanka during series of deadly attacks – police
Three more people have died in a new explosion in Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, shortly after some 160 people lost their lives in seven blasts that hit luxury hotels and Catholic churches during Easter celebrations.

A suicide bomber killed three people in central Colombo, AFP reported, citing police.

This adds to the seven explosions that have rocked three packed Catholic shrines and four high-end hotels in Sri Lanka so far on Sunday, as the island’s Christian worshippers were gathering for Easter masses.
