about the video

Sri Lankan media has aired CCTV footage of a person suspected to be one of the bombers who attacked churches on Easter. A bearded man, carrying a backpack, is seen walking across the courtyard of St Sebastian’s Church in Colombo and entering the main building. An explosion took place minutes later in which more than 50 people were killed. While the Sri Lankan government suspects a local extremist organisation’s hand, the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the bloodshed.
