The fatalities also included about one dozen foreigners.

The first explosion happened at about 8:45 am local time, and the worse appears to be the explosion at St. Sebastian’s Church in Negombo. The other attacks occurred at St. Anthony’s Shrine, and Zion Church. The 3 hotels hit were the Shangri La, Cinnamon Grand, and Kingsbury Hotel.

President Donald J. Trump offered his condolences over Twitter.

No word yet from Ilhan Omar, who is always concerned about Muslim issues but seems to neglect other’s as “Somebody did Something”.
