Seven people were arrested and three officers were killed during a raid on a house in Colombo on Sunday as police sought those behind a rash of bombings at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka that killed more than 200 people, police and local media said.
"Altogether we have information of 207 dead from all hospitals. According to the information, as of now we have 450 injured people admitted to hospitals," police spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekera told reporters in Colombo.
Those killed included more than 30 foreigners, following the near simultaneous and co-ordinated explosions that struck three churches and three luxury hotels, in one of the deadliest blasts in the country's history, government officials said.
There were eight explosions in total. This was a staggeringly thorough and well-coordinated attack on Christians and tourists.
