Several explosions reported in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, on this Easter weekend.

At least 52 are reported dead as of now, and over a Hundred are injured. And the numbers are still rising.

The explosions went of in 3 churches holding Easter services, and 3 hotels, in Colombo and its vicinity.

Local authorities are conducting S&R operations, and convening a joint military branches situation evaluation.

No organization has yet to claim responsibility for the attack.

It is unclear whether there is a direct link to the church bombings in the Philippines a few months ago,

It is clear that there is a growing tendency to attack churches, mosques, and synagogues, especially during religious holidays and services. The most events in the Philippines, New Zealand, and recently the desecration of a synagogue in Russia during Passover, underscore the vulnerability of houses of prayers. Large civilian gatherings during mass events and services are prime targets for terrorist and militants (whether organized or lone wolf), hitting large amounts of people during significant times.

This event is still on going.
