Sri Lanka Easter Sunday attacks kill more than 200 people

At least 207 people have been killed and hundreds more injured in a series of explosions across Sri Lanka.

There were eight blasts, three targeting worshippers celebrating Easter Mass at churches in the capital Colombo and two other towns. Three high-end hotels in the capital were also hit.

Five British citizens are confirmed among the dead. No one has admitted being behind the attacks – although so far seven suspects have reportedly been arrested.
