Dark day for humanity

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their loved ones.

Earlier today, several blasts in churches and hotels were reported in Sri Lanka, killing at least 290 people and injuring hundreds more.  It was a dastardly act of violence on a peaceful Sunday morning, especially when Christians were going for Easter prayers.

We strongly condemn such acts of terrorism targeting innocent victims. Let us unite with compassionate hearts and dedicate our prayers to the victims of the attacks.

We offer our deepest condolences to the families of the unfortunate ones who died in this incident, and may those injured recover soonest. We stand united with the people of Sri Lanka at this dark hour for their nation.
