Sri Lanka condemns Pak church attacks

Colombo: Sri Lanka today condemned "in strongest possible terms" the deadly suicide attacks targeting Christians at two churches in Pakistan.

The attacks in Lahore on March 15, killed 16 people and injured over 70 during Sunday prayers.

The foreign ministry here said that the "dastardly act against a religious congregation engaged in the practice and sustenance of their faith and spiritual upliftment is not only an attack against a group and places of worship but against humanity and the civilised world".

"Sri Lanka as a country which has suffered from the scourge of terrorism for more than 30 years shares the grief and pain of the people of Pakistan at this moment of distress," it said.
