Sri Lanka: video emerges of blasts after initial attack SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : THE Sri Lankan terror bombings were revenge attacks carried out in retaliation for the horrific mosque shootings in New Zealand last month, a government minister said.
A group of local brainwashed jihadis have been blamed for the assaults on hotels and churches which left at least 310 dead on Easter Sunday.
But now the sickening motive behind the coordinated massacres has been revealed.
Addressing parliament today, Sri Lanka’s state minister of defence Ruwan Wijewardene said the attacks were carried out in revenge for the terrorist shootings at two mosques in Christchurch in March.
He said early finding in the ongoing investigation into the bombings showed that Islamic terror group National Thowfeek Jamaath were motivated by the events in New Zealand.
On March 15, 50 Muslim worshippers were gunned down by disturbed white supremacist Brenton Tarrant.
Sri Lanka has today announced a national day of mourning after the terrifying attacks saw eight bombs detonated at hotels and churches, killing at least 310 – including eight Brits – and injuring more than 500.
Following the bombings that have crippled Sri Lanka, cops found 87 detonators at a bus station yesterday…
