It’s been a tragic day in Sri Lanka, with dozens reportedly killed in horrific bombings at Catholic churches. With services crowded over the popular Easter weekend period, hundreds are apparently injured as well.
In what is devastating news, so soon after the religion-influenced Christchurch attacks recently, the first bit of footage has come out from the attack.
Although much of the official news about the attack has yet to been released – and we stress, a lot is still to be confirmed – the footage is truly heartbreaking. Shot from inside the church, it shows the roof completely destroyed and the inside seating pews turned to rubble.
Watch the full video below — it’s a tough watch so viewer discretion is advised.
More to come.
