Protests have taken place in the eastern province as well to demand justice for the victims of the Easter Sunday terror attacks.

Hindu and catholic priests gathered at Charles Hall in Batticaloa and held a remembrance, before marching to the residence of the bishop of Batticaloa.

A special prayer took place at Sion Church in Batticaloa, one of the targets of the suicide bombers.

The church has been rebuilt after it was destroyed in the blast, also claiming 31 lives.




More than 260 people were killed and over 500 injured in the series of bomb attacks on three churches and three hotels on April 21, 2019.

Speaking on the fourth anniversary of the Easter Sunday terror attacks, archbishop of Colombo, Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said the attacks had been carried out by Islamic extremists, but it was possible that there had been a political conspiracy behind the carnage.

The Cardinal was addressing a commemorative mass at St. Anthony’s Church in Kochchikade yesterday.

“We are awake until justice is done,” he stressed.
