TNA condemns "horrific" Easter Sunday bombing.

The Tamil National Alliance has released a statement condemning the Easter Sunday bomb today.

The statement reads:


"The horrific attacks that took place today targeting churches and hotels in Batticaloa and Colombo are an attack on all of us, not just some of us.

These inhuman acts are designed to further erode the peaceful coexistence of diverse religious and ethnic communities in Sri Lanka. We call on all Sri Lankans to resist this destructive agenda of the attackers, and those who organised these attacks.

Easter is a day that reminds us that love and goodness will have the final word, and the interruptions of terror and hate will not prevail.

We extend our deepest sympathy to all those who have lost loved ones today and have suffered injuries. We identify with your morning and feel solidarity with your grief.

M.A. Sumanthiran

Spokesman, Tamil National Alliance.

Over 150 people are confirmed to have been killed in the explosions in Batticaloa and Colombo, with the death toll rising.

British, American and Dutch and other foreign citizens are also among those that have so far been confirmed killed.


We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
