COLOMBO (News1st): The US on Tuesday reaffirmed its support to combat terrorism, issuing a statement in remembrance of the terrorist attacks which struck Sri Lanka on April 21 last year.

“Just as the Government of Sri Lanka works to hold those involved to account, the United States will not rest in its pursuit of justice for those who commit such atrocities,” US State Secretary Mike Pompeo said in a statement.

Bombers struck three churches and three hotels in Colombo in a coordinated series of bombings, killing over 250 including five US citizens and wounding more than 500, on Easter Sunday.

“We stand in solidarity with the survivors of this brutality, and pray for their healing,” Pompeo added.
