Polish foreign ministry condemns Sri Lanka attacks

The Polish foreign ministry has condemned Easter Day bomb blasts at three churches and four hotels in Sri Lanka which killed over 200 people and wounded hundreds more.

Officials in Sri Lanka said some of the explosions are suspected to have been the work of suicide bombers. The victims were believed to include foreigners.

The foreign ministry in Warsaw said that Poland strongly condemns terrorism and violence.

The ministry was on Sunday checking whether the victims of the attacks included any Poles.

“We ask Poles who are on the spot to let their relatives know they are safe,” said foreign ministry spokeswoman Ewa Suwara.

The ministry also offered condolences to the families and relatives of the victims.

The explosions on Sunday morning devastated churches in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, and two other towns when they were packed with worshippers from the country’s Christian minority, according to media reports.

It was the worst outbreak of violence in Sri Lanka since a civil war there ended a decade ago, news agencies reported.
