Background on Sri Lanka: a useful thread by @AmarAmarasingam for those unfamiliar with the country. Sri Lanka’s recent history makes today’s attacks on Christians difficult to explain. But I imagine we will know more soon.
What happened in #SriLanka today and where, from @BBCWorld. Multiple bomb attacks, most in Colombo (the capital) but in two other cities across the country. Churches and hotels struck. Suicide bombers reported, typical of Islamists elsewhere. bbc.com/news/world-asi…
Periodic @BBCWorld updates on the bombings in Sri Lanka by @EThelwell & @glevns bbc.com/news/live/worl…
Thread. Informed speculation on #SriLankaAttacks by @AmarAmarasingam. Local Islamists with foreign support? Too early to say for certain, but consistent w/methods & targets.
Addendum to the #SriLanka items above: thread by @willripleyCNN. It’s a big jump from vandalizing Buddhist temples to murdering 300 people in coordinated, geographically dispersed suicide bomb attacks. “Inspiration” from ISIS was probably tangible.
