Sri Lanka attacks: Islamic State group claims responsibility – BBC News


IS may be linked to bomb blasts which killed more than 320 people and wounded 500, Sri Lanka’s prime minister has said. He conceded that a failure to share intelligence prevented security services from acting to stop the bombings. Police have now detained 40 suspects in connection with the attack, all of whom were Sri Lankan nationals.

It’s been a day of national mourning across the country, as the mass funerals took place after Easter Sunday’s suicide attacks on churches and hotels. Eight Britons were among those killed in the blasts. A state of emergency remains in effect to prevent further attacks.

Clive Myrie and Rajini Vaidyanathan report on those affected in Sri Lanka, while Gordon Correra examines how IS might be involved.

  1. In islam, there are only the oppressors and the oppressed. Wake up! Read from their "holy book"
    Sura 8, vs 12-13

    12Your Lord inspired the angels: “I
    am with you, so support those who
    believe. I will cast terror into the
    hearts of those who disbelieve. So strike above the necks, and strike off
    every fingertip of theirs.
    13 That is because they opposed
    Allah and His Messenger. Whoever
    opposes Allah and His Messenger—
    Allah is severe in retribution.

    Sura9 vs 5
    5 When the Sacred Months have
    passed, kill the polytheists wherever
    you find them. And capture them,
    and besiege them, and lie in wait for
    them at every ambush.

    Sura 9 vs 30-31
    30 The Jews said, “Ezra is the son of
    Allah,” and the Christians said, “The
    Messiah is the son of Allah.” These
    are their statements, out of their
    mouths. They emulate the
    statements of those who
    blasphemed before. May Allah assail
    them! How deceived they are!

    31 They have taken their rabbis and
    their priests as lords instead of Allah,
    as well as the Messiah son of Mary.
    Although they were commanded to
    worship none but The One God.
    There is no god except He. Glory be
    to Him; High above what they
    associate with Him.

    Sura 23 vs 15
    23 It is We who give life and cause
    death, and We are the Inheritors.

    Sura 17 vs 75

    75 Then We would have made you
    taste double in life, and double at
    death; then you would have found
    for yourself no helper against Us.

    Sura 50 vs 43
    43 It is We who control life and death,
    and to Us is the destination.

    Sura 56 vs 60
    We have decreed death among
    you, and We will not be outstripped

    Sura 4 vs 47

    47 O you who were given the Book!
    Believe in what We sent down,
    confirming what you have, before
    We obliterate faces and turn them inside out, or curse them as We
    cursed the Sabbath-breakers. The
    command of Allah is always done.

    Sura 19 vs 74
    74 How many a generation have We
    destroyed before them, who
    surpassed them in riches and

    Sura 19 vs 98
    98 How many a generation have We
    destroyed before them? Can you
    feel a single one of them, or hear
    from them the slightest whisper?

    Sura 47 vs 4
    4 When you encounter those who
    disbelieve, strike at their necks.

    Sura 4 vs 76
    76 Those who believe fight in the
    cause of Allah, while those who
    disbelieve fight in the cause of Evil.
    So fight the allies of the Devil. Surely
    the strategy of the Devil is weak.

  2. India warning before Sri Lanka govt ,and security but Sri Lanka never careful this Islamic JIHADI group, militants groups. Ban Islam, India both country save PEOPLE. Wake up all peaceful people

    What is the Islamic state? Why do you say Islam? Why do you say to the base that is the slogan of this black flag blowing up in the land of Islam and all the countries of the world because they are Muslims? Why do not you call Islam and Muslims, Yamamerica and you go to terrorism? The weak and you say Islam to the water of Latgirun this name for his real name, God!

  4. Religion never kill the religion
    People killing people any religion isn’t factory of terrorism
    But there is little people do this thing
    I condemn this attack
    It’s not the wive to revenge
    This people are not enemy of Islam
    God bless all Sri Lanka 🇱🇰

  5. such useless BBC commentary. they didn't say what they learned from the attack, or how to prevent the next one…as if, they have no clue, whatsoever. all BBC preaches is anti-hate ideology. as if Islam is going to somehow go away…

  6. We people of all other religion including those with no religion need to come together and stand against terrorislam. We don't have to harm terrorislam followers but we need to murder its harmful ideologies. We need to come together and ban all the customs, dressings, ideologies, harmful books, koran and every single aspect of terrorislam. Without coming together it is not possible, it is fight between humanity and devil ideology. We need to stand up with humanity for our childrens, for our family, for peace,

  7. i have no problem with most muslims, i just wondering whats these "muslim" terrorist motives ? thats my biggest concern. great condolence from me to all the victims may your soul rest in peace.

  8. Islam doesn't allow terrorism at all. We muslims hate terrorists. According to Islam to kill innocent people is prohibited at all. Its propaganda against the Islam. We are with Sri Lanka and with that innocent people.

  9. 2000 years ago Jesus said, "You will be thrown out of synagogues. Certainly, the time is coming when people who murder you will think that they are serving God."
    (John 16:2)

  10. Please don't call it a Islamic group call it anti islamic group, stop spoiling the name of Islam which is a peaceful religion. BBC being an honest news broadcaster should stop using this word.

  11. ISIS was founded by the world wide Wahabist Sunni movement of Saudi Arabia.
    Saudi Arabia is the ideological and financial octopus of 99% of the world wide terror-ideology.
    From Pakistan till Indonesia, from Europe till Nigeria. Israel supports Saudi Arabia.
    Trump sward-danced with this criminial regime while they kill Christians world wide.
    Trump gave them munnition to forfill the genocide in Yemen together with May and Macron…
    They form the shameless Pentagon of Terror these days.


  13. Wheres the outrage? Where are all the celebrities who paid sympathy for the New Zeland mosque shooting?
    Just comes to show if it doesn't benefit their politics these evil Hollywood celebrities don't care

  14. I am still waiting for the Muslim Council of Britain to hold a Memorial for 253 Christian dead and many hundreds of men, women and children horribly injured in Sri Lanka? You know, As New Zealand did, they collectively beat their own breasts in Anguish and held a two-minute silence in the WHOLE Country? So where is the outpouring of Greif from Islamic leaders and people, Even Muslim Obama couldn't use the word Christion? he called them 'Easter Worshippers' as if they were a cult? The Muslims were probably dancing in joy like they did when Notre Damm burnt.??? Watch.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfEtKZhInb0

  15. Not ONCE have I heard the word MUSLIM mentioned. Why? The enemy is *invisible*? You've got to be kidding. They are not invisible, and they can be readily identified.

  16. Radicalised Islam and pakistan 🇵🇰 are cancer to the world😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠
