New dashcam video of Sunday's blast at St Anthony's shrine

2019-04-22 15:10
Dashcam video shot from a vehicle being driven towards St. Anthony's Shrine in Colombo on April 21, shows the moment a bomb exploded in the building. The blast at the tourist landmark - timed at 0845am locally—was one of the coordinated bombings which targeted Sri Lankan churches and hotels on Easter Sunday. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosions, many of them suicide bombings, which killed 290 people and wounded 500 others—the deadliest attack in the island nation since the end of a civil war in 2009.
