Police say the death toll from the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka has increased to 290.
Police spokesperson Ruwan Gunasekara also said Monday more than 500 people had been wounded.
The island-wide curfew imposed by the government was lifted early on Monday, although there was uncharacteristically thin traffic in the normally bustling capital.
The streets in the capital, Colombo, were largely deserted, with most shops closed and a heavy deployment of soldiers and police.
Stunned clergy and onlookers gathered at St. Anthony’s Shrine, looking past the soldiers to the damaged church that was targeted in one of the blasts.
The bombings of churches, luxury hotels and other sites was Sri Lanka’s deadliest violence since a devastating civil war ended a decade ago.
