Apr 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena expressed his, shock, deep pain and dismay over the brutal attacks on places of religious worship and other civilian establishments.

The President said he has instructed all law enforcement agencies and defense services to take every possible step to maintain law and order and conduct speedy investigations into the dastardly attack and bring the culprits and those who were behind this conspiracy to book.

"I have given instructions to take very stern action against the persons who are responsible for this conspiracy," the President said and added that all required steps have been taken to fulfill the responsibilities as a government.

President Sirisena appealed to the nation to act with utmost restraint and patience, and not to be misled by baseless rumors and false stories. He also urged the people to extend unstinted support and cooperation to the government for the steps taken at this trying occasion.

At least 100 people reported to have been killed and hundreds more injured in a series of bomb attacks on churches in Colombo and Batticaloa and five-star hotels in capital Colombo on Easter Sunday.
