More than 500 people were injured in the blasts that started early on 21 April and targeted three churches during Easter mass and five hotels. Among those killed were many foreign nationals, including 10 Indians.
According to a CNN report, the Sri Lankan government received intelligence inputs about the attacks days before it happened, but failed to take action to prevent it. The country declared an emergency on Monday, and imposed a curfew as well.
