The Sri Lankan police have arrested 24 people in connection with a series of devastating suicide bombings at hotels and churches on Easter Sunday that left nearly 300 people dead and more than 500 injured.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but a police officer alerted security officials in an advisory 10 days ago about a threat to churches from a radical Islamist group, National Thowheeth Jamaath. The authorities, however, failed to act on the information, government officials said.
A nationwide curfew was lifted on Monday morning, but major social media and messaging services, including Facebook and WhatsApp, remained blocked by the government to curb the spread of misinformation.

But good that they got at least some of the terrorists.
Just some people who did something on a stroll on Easter Weekend in Sri Lanka. At this point what difference does it make anyway? No sense in getting all wee-wee’d up about it? Sometimes people disrespectful of the prophet need to shut up and eat their peas and get to the back of the bus.
Never heard of this group before.
It’s a smart tactic, having lots of “groups”.
Then muslim leaders can say it wasn’t muslims in general but this or that “group”.
We should look at each “group” as we looked at German divisions, part of the whole.
And needing to die.
Too bad they didn’t catch wind of all those attacks going to happen.
Ah, our resident terrorist in Congress already knows who, “some people did something”. Now, let’s move along. /s
Islam is Islam. They might claim it was a subset of Muslims but at the end of the day, they are all the same. No one is safe is any member of the Islamic cult amongst us.
Has she condemned the Christians or Jews yet?
But suckers fall for it.
“there’s only 259 members of that group. There are 1.6 billion muslims!!”
It’s the lie that many fall prey to.
Even bushie, I think, said something like most of Islam is peaceful or something to that effect, way back when.
Well, Some Grand Ayatollah in Iran is telling the world that “Allah is happy with all of this killing!” Personally, I’d like to wake up tomorrow to read that this a$$hole has been rendered dead via one of our sniper’s long-range kill shots!
Hopefully it will change to "hunt a muslim day" when good people wake up.
These guys just need to die.
Young Iranians rose up when we had a muslim loving garbage president.
How about NOW, while we have a president that will support them!
I’d be willing to wager maybe 15 percent of muzzies would like to forget the word “Islam” if they wouldn’t get killed for suggesting such a thing.
It’s not a YUGE percentage, but it’s something to work with.
Arm. Train. Set loose.
Can we please stop this?
We have a major attack from this Jihadi freaks, families in mourning. Frankly, I think these dead Christians deserve a little more than snarky sarcasm.
Yes, something should be done about these apologists for islamic murderers. But constantly giving them air-time on our networks isn’t one of the solutions.
jimjoh - OUT.
Need to go Luca Brazi on them.
Muslim fanatics in Sri Lanka. Muslim loving fanatics at the NYT
A pic is worth a thousand words they say. That pic is worth just about every word ever written or uttered. How dare that commie, white anter of a pope kiss that islamic war manual. He might as well go and kiss Mein Kampf whilst he is at it. He kisses Das Kapital every chance he gets too. Disgusting
They were alerted 10 days ago of attacks on Christian churches, but did not act.
Yes, renounce Islam or die. They are a threat to the rest of the world. 1.6 billion people bent on killing “infidels”, cheering each death.
