SL marks 2nd anniversary of Easter Sunday bombings

Colombo, April 21 (TIWN) Sri Lanka on Wednesday marked the second anniversary of the Easter Sunday bombings with religious ceremonies, as Catholics called for investigations into the attacks to be expedited.

Catholic churches conducted prayer services after two minutes of silence in remembrance of the 271 people killed in the multiple explosions. Other religious groups held similar events.  A multi-religious remembrance service attended by Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim clergy and diplomats was held at the St Anthony's Catholic shrine in the capital Colombo - one of the targets of the suicide bombings.
