Christians in the West awoke Easter morning to learn the horrible news that hundreds of their brothers and sisters in the East had been targeted by a coordinated series of suicide bombing terror attacks in the south Asian island nation of Sri Lanka.

Fox News reported that those near-simultaneous explosions, which targeted three churches during Easter worship services and three luxury hotels popular with foreign tourists, claimed the lives of at least 290 people and wounded more than 500 others.
