'It is contradictory to kill people'; archbishop speaks after Sri Lanka attacks

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

He Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, held a solemn special mass from a church adjacent to his house that was broadcast live across local television and radio on Sunday (April 28).

In the sermon, the archbishop condemned the attacks that killed 253 people and wounded 500 on Easter Sunday.

"It is a contradiction to kill someone in the name of God," the archbishop said in his sermon.

Sri Lanka's 22 million people include minority Christians, Muslims and Hindus.

Until now, Christians had largely managed to avoid the worst of the island's conflict and communal tensions.
