The first elements of the investigation show that the attacks in Sri Lanka were committed "in retaliation to Christchurch," said Tuesday the Deputy Minister of Sri Lanka Defense.
The attack in New Zealand, committed in two mosques in the city in mid-March, had killed 50 people.

"Preliminary investigations revealed that what happened in Sri Lanka was in retaliation for the attack on the Muslims in Christchurch," Ruwan Wijewardene told the parliament.

Sunday's death toll in Sri Lanka has risen to 310 on Tuesday after several injured have died from their injuries, local police said. Authorities have arrested 40 people in the investigation of these attacks attributed to a local Islamist movement, the National Thowheeth Jama'ath (NTJ), police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said.

Sri Lanka observed Tuesday a three-minute silence in tribute to the victims of suicide bombers who hit luxury hotels and churches celebrating Easter Mass at several points on the island.
