At Least 45 Children Killed in Sri Lanka Attacks

Radio NZ

At least 45 children were among the more than 320 people killed in suicide bomb attacks in Sri Lanka, the UNICEF said on Tuesday, Albiladpress reports. 

“The total now is 45 children who died,” UNICEF spokesman Christophe Boulierac told reporters in Geneva.

He added that the toll from the Sunday attacks could rise as many other minors “are wounded and are now fighting for their lives in intensive care units across the country.”

UNICEF has confirmed that 27 children were killed and another 10 injured in the attack at St Sebastian’s Church in Negombo.

In the eastern city of Batticaloa, 13 children were killed, including an 18-month-old baby, UNICEF said.

Those 40 children who lost their lives in the two cities were Sri Lankan nationals, while UNICEF has confirmed that another five children of foreign nationality were also killed.
