Not just Christians but people from across the world and cutting across religions took to social media to express grief and anger

On the Christian festival of Easter, the dastardly attacks across churches and hotels in Sri Lanka have left the world shocked and in mourning. On Sunday, the world woke up to six attacks that ripped through the country, with at least 160 people feared dead (as of 12 p.m.). Worshippers were targeted at the Kochikade, St Sebastian and Batticaloa churches during Easter mass. The other locations are Hotel Shangri La, Cinnamon Grand and Kingsbury hotel.

The blasts have caused an outpouring of grief and condolences on social media, even as graphic images of the attacks went viral on various platforms. While there remained confusion as to the increasing death toll, most people expressed great sorrow at the tragedy, which happened on Easter Sunday, a day that is revered by Christians across the globe.
