Condemning the serial bomb blasts in Sri Lanka that claimed 156 lives, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "There is no place for such barbarism in our region." Calling the blasts horrific, PM Modi added, "My thoughts are with the bereaved families and prayers with the injured." He further said, "India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka."
The blasts hit several high-end hotels and a church in Colombo, while two other churches were targeted outside Colombo, Sri Lanka police told news agency AFP. The nature of the blasts was not immediately clear and there were no immediate claims of responsibility.
