Like the rest of the country, Kattankudy is grappling with anger and grief in the aftermath of the Easter Sunday attacks.

Officials lowered the death toll by about one-third on Thursday. Forensic experts explain the gruesome reason why.

The explosions around the country Sunday killed at least 250 people.

An exact counting of the dead was hard because of the difficulty of making identifications from fragments of bodies, officials said.

Mosques flew white flags and posted banners with messages of condolence for the victims of the bombings, in which more than 350 were killed.

The highest-ranking Catholic official in Sri Lanka called for “merciless punishment” but told the faithful to remain calm.

The majority of the victims were Sri Lankan, many of them Christians worshiping at churches in three cities when bomb blasts splintered pews and collapsed ceilings.

The Christian minority faces violence and discrimination in Sri Lanka, but attacks on this scale are without precedent.

Across Sri Lanka on Sunday morning, travelers and worshipers awoke to celebrate a holy resurrection. Then the explosions began.

The block comes amid a string of deadly explosions that killed more than 200 people.
