A CCTV footage of a suicide bomber entering a church before the Sri Lanka Easter Bombing occurred, has emerged days after the attack.
The CCTV footage was that of the suicide bomber who killed entering St Sebastian’s church in Negombo. The footage was broadcast widely on Sri Lankan news channels. The Easter Sunday attacks that killed more than 320 people in Sri Lanka were a response to the mass shooting at a mosque in Christchurch in March, Sri Lanka’s minister of state for defence has told the country’s parliament.
Ruwan Wijewardene told a special sitting of the national body on Tuesday afternoon that investigations had shown “this attack was carried out in retaliation for the attack against Muslims in Christchurch”, he said. The minister presented no evidence for the claim.
