Absolutely shocking and devastating especially on such a holy day...

Sri Lanka's government has declared an islandwide curfew from 18:00 local time to 06:00 (12:30 GMT-00:30).

At least 138 confirmed to be dead now

Personally they should declare martial law and put the military on the street, the place is under attack and the authorities have no control.

Reuters is reporting that the Sri Lankan government has shut down access to major social media messaging services, though the BBC has received sporadic social media messages from people in Sri Lanka. It is unclear how far messaging services are affected.

How are your family?
I truly do sympathise with you and I hope they are all doing fine.

I’m British Sri Lankan (also Christian) and we’ve just been phoning family and friends back home to find out if everyone’s OK.

If there’s only one thing to say to this: please be kind. There’s no reason to hurt others. We’re all human.

Utterly horrific.

I fear the death toll is going to go up.

This is absolutely disgusting.
These acts have no excuse whatsoever.
I sympathize with all families and people affected by this horrific situation.

It’s just awful. My family is Sri Lanka originally and I’m Christian as well so it is horrific to see this. So many people just brutally slaughtered, ripped apart into shreds by shrapnel, it will remind a lot of Sri Lankans of the old days of the war. May God bless them and give them eternal life.

That’s such a relief. Which areas are they in?
Colombo and Jaffna. Everyone is being told to stay inside their homes apparently, and there’s still a risk of further bombers.

Of course this is all good and acceptable to the left because only Islam can be oppressed.

I note that not one of our resident TSR muslims have come out to condemn the attack!

A terrible loss of life in Sri Lanka by callous terrorist attacks. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Christian brothers and sisters in humanity.

It is unlikely to be any other perpetrator. If it however transpires that the attacks are down to buddhists or some other group I will retract my statement

Being a Sri Lankan myself this is an utter shock for me as Sri Lanka is accepting of other religions and I did not know there would be hate and people who target religious communities.I am deeply sorry for those who have lost relatives and have been affected and hope the death toll does not rise.
I hope the Sri Lankan government get to the bottom of this attack and find the true perpetrators.

I just want to say lets not put the blame on Buddhist extremists or any other extreme groups without facts.
