The victims of the horrific Sri Lanka attacks were those who were at the churches that were targeted and those that were in the luxury hotels. The vicious attack was aimed at tourists and those who were celebrating Easter. It was a very sad event and was totally uncalled for.
There were at least 253 people who were killed and about 500 people who were injured. The attack leaves the entire area as if it was a war zone. Travel is not advised and everyone is on their guard. It is something that wasn't anticipated or predicted by Sri Lanka has its fair share of trouble so it didn't come as a complete surprise either.
