Multiple blasts kill more than 100 on Easter Sunday at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka

At least 130 people were killed and hundreds more injured after a series of blasts shook Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. A wave of near-simultaneous explosions rocked three churches and three luxury hotels, officials said, leaving nearly 500 people hospitalized from injuries.

Police later reported a seventh explosion, the fourth at a hotel, which was near the capital Colombo. The government declared an island-wide curfew and said it had shut down access to major social media sites and messaging services to prevent misinformation and rumors.
