The police stated that three Catholic churches were hit by explosions in Sri Lanka on Sunday during Easter mass, as well as three large hotels - the Cinnamon Grand, Kingsbury, and Shangri-La. The government, led by the prime minister, has announced an emergency meeting to address the explosions.

Footage depicting the moment of the blast at St. Anthony's Shrine in the Kochchikade district of the capital has been leaked online. The video shows thick smoke enveloping the building following the explosion.

Sri Lanka was rocked by eight deadly blasts on Easter Sunday that hit Catholic churches and hotels in the South Asian nation, leaving 185 dead and 500 injured. AP cited a police source as saying that at least two of the explosions are believed to have been perpetrated by suicide bombers.
