Bomber queued at buffet, unleashed devastation

The suicide bomber waited patiently in a queue for the Easter Sunday breakfast buffet at Sri Lanka’s Cinnamon Grand hotel before setting off explosives strapped to his back. Carrying a plate, the man, who had registered at the hotel the night before as Mohamed Azzam Mohamed, was just about to be served when he set off his devastating strike in the packed restaurant, a manager at the Sri Lankan hotel said. “There was utter chaos,” said the manager. “It was 8:30 am and it was busy. It was families,” the manager told AFP. “He came up to the top of the queue and set off the blast,” he added. The bomber also died.
