Sri Lanka Terrorism
Sri Lankan Highways Minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle is among at least 10 people killed in a bomb blast near Colombo, officials say.
Sri Lanka says militant group National Thowfeek Jamaath is suspected in Easter Sunday bombings. The bombings that ripped through Sri Lankan churches and luxury hotels, killing at least 290 people and injuring over 500 more, were carried out by seven suicide bombers from the domestic militant group, a government official said Monday. All of the bombers were Sri Lankan citizens, but authorities suspect foreign links, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said at a news conference. Source 9h.
I figured it would be something like this, there's probably a new foreign influence that the world doesn't know of that's causing these strings of terrorist attacks against Christians. But then again, it can be the same groups that have been pulling out terrorism for years.

The response to this has to be quick, hard and brutal so that others do not feel they can do the same thing and not be held accountable for it.
