'Low-risk' Sri Lanka grapples with recent terror attacks


Heartfelt condolences are sent to the people of Sri Lanka from the management and staff at Asia Insurance Review and Middle East Insurance Review as the Easter Sunday terror attacks in Sri Lanka have left at least 290 dead and 500 injured according to latest government figures. Sri Lanka was rocked by a series of co-ordinated bomb attacks at three churches in Colombo, Negombo and Batticaloa as well as hotels Kingsbury, Shangri-La and Cinnamon Grands in Colombo yesterday. The attacks came as a surprise as Sri Lanka was perceived to have a low terrorism risk after a violent civil war between the separatist Tamil Tigers and the government ended in 2009.
