Pope Condemns Sri Lanka Easter Attacks As 'Such Cruel Violence'

According to Reuters, Pope Francis on Sunday condemned attacks that killed at least 138 people in three churches and four hotels in Sri Lanka, as “such cruel violence." The blasts, which hospital and police officials said wounded more than 400 people, followed a lull in major attacks since the end of the civil war 10 years ago.

Pope Francis told tens of thousands of people that on Easter, the attacks have "brought mourning and pain to churches and other places where people were gathered in Sri Lanka."
