Lanka cancels weekend masses over fresh attack fears

May 02, 2019 18:10 IST

Sri Lankan authorities have cancelled weekend masses in the capital Colombo because of fears of fresh bomb attacks. The fresh decision was made by Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith based on the latest security reports, the Sri Lankan media reported. The Cardinal had earlier instructed the churches to have a limited number of masses on May 5, but not to have evening services. The churches in Colombo and suburbs have been closed since the April 21 deadly Easter Sunday bomb attacks which killed 253 people.
