Over 207 people died in suicide bombings in Sri Lanka. Bombers attacked three churches. They had religious services for Easter, one of the biggest events in the Christian calendar. Three luxury hotels were also hit. People must report anything suspicious. Police have arrested seven people.

Pope Francis said: "I pray for the injured and all those who are suffering." The Catholic Church said it never thought such a thing would happen on Easter Sunday. The USA said it is ready to help "the great people of Sri Lanka". Turkey said the bombs were attacks "on all of humanity". Sri Lanka is unstable at the moment.
