On Sunday, Sri Lanka was hit by a series of coordinated bombings in churches and hotels in the capital of Colombo and other cities, killing over 300 people and wounding at least 500 others.

In recently revealed CCTV footage, one of the seven suspected suicide bombers is seen stopping to pat a girl on the head minutes before detonating a bomb.

The footage, released by St. Sebastian Church, shows a man wearing a backpack, approaching the altar in the crowded church.

At least 321 people were killed and a further 450 were injured on Sunday, during Easter weekend, in eight seemingly coordinated explosions which rocked hotels and churches across the country.

Six blasts took place in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo while two further explosions occurred in the western city of Negombo and the eastern city of Batticaloa.

A Sri Lankan government spokesperson admitted during a press conference in Colombo on Monday that there had been warnings from intelligence agencies about possible terrorist attacks on Christian targets in the country.

Sri Lanka launched a criminal investigation immediately after the attacks and has so far arrested 40 suspects.
