‘Assaults on all humanity’: Turkey’s Erdogan condemns Sri Lankan bombings

‘Assaults on all humanity’: Turkey’s Erdogan condemns Sri Lankan bombings
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has condemned the bombing attacks on Christian churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, which happened during the celebration of Easter.

Erdogan offered Turkey’s condolences to the families of victims and a speedy recovery to the hundreds of people who were injured by Sunday’s bombings.

Meanwhile, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu compared the attacks to the recent shooting in New Zealand, in which a white nationalist gunned downed 50 people at two mosques in the city of Christchurch.

An increasing number of international officials have joined in condemning the bloodiest act of violence that Sri Lanka has since the end of its civil war a decade ago. No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, which claimed over 150 lives and resulted in the hospitalization of at least 400.
