Bishops call for restraint after Sri Lanka terror attacks

Light of truth

Catholic bishops have urged Sri Lankans to stay calm and act with prudence and restraint following the Easter Sunday bombings that killed more than 350 people. After the death toll rose to 350, April 23 was declared a national day of mourning and the country observed three minutes of silence at 8.30 a.m. as a tribute to victims of the terrorist attacks.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Sri Lanka said it expects the government to conduct an immediate inquiry and urged citizens to remain calm.
