SHILLONG, April 21 - The Presbyterian Church of India (PCI) has condemned the serial bomb blasts across several churches and hotels in Sri Lanka today.
�The PCI, a body of 1.4 million Church members, condemns the act of cowardly extremists in Sri Lanka during this day of Easter celebration where hundreds of precious souls lost their lives and many were injured,� Rev GS Lyttan, Senior Administrative Secretary, Presbyterian Church of India, said here.
Over 200 people were killed and over 470 injured in eight bomb blasts across different churches and luxury hotels in the neighbouring country. Some of these were suicide bombs and killed several devotees during the Easter Mass.
