(Evangelical Focus)— On Sunday, suicide bombers killed and injured hundreds during Easter services and at luxury hotels across Sri Lanka.
Although the official death toll had reached 359 by Thursday, the Sri Lankan government later revised that figure down to 253.
One of the locations attacked was the evangelical Zion Church of Batticaloa, where 14 children (7 girls and 7 boys) and 12 adults were killed, while around 130 have been treated in Batticaloa Teaching Hospital, and seven of them are still in a critical condition.
The 14-year-old second son of Zion Church pastor Ganeshamoorthy Kumaran was among the children who died in the explosion.
