Accepted submission by aristarchus at 2019-04-21 09:44:01 from the Fake-news-displacement dept.

According the Beeb (BBC) []:

At least 137 people have been killed and hundreds more injured in explosions at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka, police and hospital sources say.

At least seven blasts were reported. Three churches in Negombo, Batticaloa and Colombo's Kochchikade district were targeted during Easter services.

The Shangri-La, Kingsbury, Cinnamon Grand and a fourth hotel, all in Colombo, were also hit.

A curfew has been imposed from 18:00 to 06:00 local time (12:30-00:30 GMT).

No group has yet said it was responsible for the attacks.

This submission only here to point out that the Islamophobic sub is fake news. Carry on.
