The British Government Warns against Travel to Sri Lanka
The British government warns against travel to Sri Lanka because it is very likely that terrorists will carry out more attacks. On Easter Monday, Sunni extremists committed suicide attacks on churches and hotels on the island.
About 360 people were killed and more than five hundred injured. The Sri Lankan authorities have set a curfew from 10 p.m. to 4 p.m. and are looking for more perpetrators.
London advises going to Sri Lanka only if necessary. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs has for the time being warned not to go to public places in Sri Lanka where there are many people.
A priest on the island said that all Roman Catholic churches would remain closed for the time being on the advice of the authorities.
Predominantly Buddhist Sri Lanka has a Christian minority of about 7.5 percent of the population who are mainly Roman Catholic.
