Reuters – China on Tuesday (April 23) warned Chinese nationals against travelling to Sri Lanka in the near term after bomb blasts ripped through churches and luxury hotels across the island nation on Easter Sunday (April 21).

If Chinese nationals insist on travelling to Sri Lanka, it would be difficult for the embassy to provide effective assistance in view of the “huge security risks” involved, the Chinese embassy said in a statement on its website on Tuesday.

China is a major investor in Sri Lanka, which is also a popular tourist destination for Chinese people. Residents in Beijing said they would hold off visiting until things go back to normal.

The national flag was seen flying at half-mast at the Sri Lankan embassy in Beijing on Tuesday to mourn the victims of the bombings.
