Storyline


Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena's office on Monday declared a state of emergency from midnight Monday following the deadly blasts on Easter Sunday.

A statement released by the President's Media Division (PMD) said the decision was taken to ensure the safety of citizens and the president had also declared April 23 a National Day of Mourning.

The death toll from the multiple explosions on Sunday has risen to 290 and the number of injured was more than 500, the police said Monday.

Sri Lanka's security forces have launched a massive search and arrested 24 suspects so far.

Another minor explosion was reported in the capital of Colombo on Monday as Sri Lanka's Bomb Disposal Unit was trying to defuse three bombs that were found in an abandoned vehicle, local media reported.

The vehicle was parked 50 meters away from St. Anthony's Church in Kochchikade, where one of the multiple deadly attacks took place on Sunday.

Local media quoted the police as saying that the Bomb Disposal Unit defused the bomb in a controlled explosion. No injuries were reported.

"Around four o'clock, a blast sound was heard, a big blast sound. We're also scared very much," said a local resident, who thought it was another blast.

On the same day, the police said it discovered 87 low explosive detonators abandoned at Colombo's main public bus station in the business hub of Pettah.

President Sirisena urged the security forces to beef up security around churches and other places.

The wave of attacks started Sunday morning as explosions were reported from St. Anthony's Church in Kochchikade in Colombo; St. Sebastian's Church in Negombo, on the outskirts of Colombo; and Zion Church in the eastern town of Batticaloa.

Blasts also struck three high-end hotels in Colombo --the Cinnamon Grand, Shangri-La and Kingsbury hotels-- while on Sunday afternoon an explosion was reported from a hotel opposite a zoo in Dehiwala in Colombo, and another from a housing complex in Dematagoda, also in the capital.

The attacks marked the most deadly violence in Sri Lanka since a bloody civil war ended 10 years ago.
