    Some people did something .... again

    As worshipers gathered on Sunday at Roman Catholic churches across Sri Lanka to celebrate Easter Mass, the culmination of Holy Week, a wave of explosions rocked the congregations.
    At about 8:45 a.m., at least eight bombing attacks struck at least three churches, along with three five-star hotels favored by foreigners, killing more than 200 people, in what the police said had been a coordinated attack.
    • A senior presidential aide said it appeared that the attacks had been carried out by suicide bombers. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombings.
    • Seven people were detained in connection with the attacks, according to the defense minister.
    • Sri Lanka blocked major social media and messaging services, including Facebook and WhatsApp, to curb misinformation, according to the president’s secretary, Udaya Seneviratne.
    • A police official said 207 people had been killed and 450 others wounded. Twenty-seven foreigners were among the dead, the country’s foreign minister said.

    you should find out who the first reponders are going after before jumping to conclusions.
    an operation that attacks five places all at once was in place for many months and is not a kneejerk responce to ChristChurch NewZealand.

    So quick to race to deny the obvious. There's a Holy War going on, AGAIN!

    While Muslims are very possibly the perps, at least one militant Hindu group has been committing murderous violence against Christians in the region, and I'm sure there are Tamil (ethnic group) separatists who want to stir up their cause again. As long as the police there bring the real perps to justice - those who supported the suicide bombers - rather than rounding up a bunch of usual suspects, I don't care a lot about the perps' "cause".
